On July 19, 2012, a recall was issued by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission for children's folding beach chairs made by Downeast Concepts. The recalled beach chairs have exposed, sharp metal rivets which pose a laceration hazard.
A 21-month-old girl cut her forehead when she fell on the chair's metal rivets and needed stitches.
The chairs have white aluminum tube frames with different color fabric seats with fish, palm tree or mermaid decorations on the fabric. The chairs were sold at various stores including Home Goods from June 2011 to June 2012 for between $13 and $25.
With the consecutive heat waves in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, many families are going to the beach to escape the heat.
If you have young kids, you probably have children's beach chairs. Before you let your kids use the beach chair, make sure it is not one that has been recently recalled.
