A $229 Aldi recliner chair has been recalled amid fears it is unstable and can tip over.

Product Safety Australia (PSA) issued a warning about the Sohl recliner chair on Thursday.

“If the chair tips over during use, there is a risk of serious injury to the chair’s occupant and bystanders and/or damage to property,” PSA said.

It was sold at stores from January 20 to February 22.

The chair can be identified by a label on the footrest which bears the product code 704625.

Customers are being urged to stop using the chair “immediately” and return it to their local Aldi store for a full refund.

Yahoo News Australia has contacted Aldi for comment.

Earlier this year, consumers were warned to stop using popular tea products available at Aldi, Woolworths, Coles and IGA stores after they were found to be contaminated with a chemical that can be harmful if ingested or inhaled.

Aldi's Diplomat brand of Ginger and Lemon Herbal Infusion 60-gram packs of tea were recalled in February due to the dangerous chemical, ethylene oxide, being detected.
