Louisa, VA — Standard and Economy Hammock Stands by Twin Oaks are being recalled for fall hazards the product poses to consumers. Twin Oaks and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the nationwide product recall on February 29, 2012.
The recall was issued after discovering that the foot brackets used to support the hammock can crack, causing the stand to collapse and pose a fall hazard to consumers.
“This recall involves hammock stands made from steel pipe and sold in green and black under the Twin Oaks brand. The hammock stands are used with all Twin Oaks double and family-sized rope hammocks, as well as all Twin Oaks fabric hammocks. Model number 14015 (green) or 14016 (black) is printed on the instruction materials included with the stand,” reported the CPSC.
Consumers are advised to contact Twin Oaks for instructions on returning the foot brackets for a free replacement.
