I purchased a La-Z-Boy Vail XR power recliner on Aug 31, 2012. I was sitting in the chair in an upright position on Friday, Nov 16, 2012, when I dropped a piece of popcorn in the chair, and reached between the bottom cushion and the arm of the chair to attempt to retrieve the popcorn. I cut my finger severely. I turned the chair over and discovered some very sharp edges on some exposed metal. It seems to be a natural reaction for someone to attempt to retrieve a dropped object. I dread the thought of a small child attempting to retrieve a toy or other object. I can easily imagine the possibility of a severed finger.
