We purchased a glass kitchen table and chairs from Value City Furniture about 1.5 years ago. The thickness of the glass is about 1/2" thick. There was nothing on the table except 4 cloth placemats. We woke up to what sounded like a shot gun. The table exploded. Glass was everywhere. Up to 15 feet away in our dining room and living room.

Comment from American Signature , Inc 6/3/2014
We have investigated this incident with our vendor, the tempered glass manufacturer and our customer service. We found there have been no other incidents or claims and this is the only incident of this type for this tempered glass table top. Our customer returned the dining room set for a full credit and exchange for a new dining room set.
