New York, N.Y.—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Walmart have voluntarily recalled Mainstays five-piece card table and chair sets due to fall and amputation hazards posed to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on January 2, 2014.
The table and chair sets were recalled after discovering that the chairs can suddenly collapse, posing a fall and amputation and/or injury of the finger hazards.
There have been 10 reports of collapsing chairs, which has resulted in one finger amputation, three fingertip amputations, as well as sprained or fractured fingers. One report of a sore back was also received.
“This recall involves the Mainstays card table sets with a black padded metal folding table and four black padded metal folding chairs. ‘Made by: Dongguan Shin Din Metal & Plastic Products Co,’ the company that made the chair cushions, is printed on a white label on the bottom of the chairs,” the CPSC reported.
Consumers are advised to return the card table and chair sets to your local Walmart store for a full refund.
