In the summer, many of us spend a lot of time outside, whether it is taking a walk or simply sitting on our patios or decks soaking in the beautiful weather. If you have outdoor patio or deck furniture, you need to make sure your furniture has not been recalled. There were two recalls involving outdoor furniture last month.
Swing Chairs Recalled Due To Fall Hazard
Last month, about 250 swing chairs manufactured by Ramart were recalled due to a fall hazard. The swing chairs can tip over and cause consumers to fall and get injured.
The recalled chairs are green, apple-shaped swing chairs and brown, teardrop-shaped swing chairs. They hang from a chain connected to a metal stand with a circle-shaped base. The chairs have red cushions.
There have been 11 reports of the chairs tipping over with consumers in them, including adults and a baby.
The chairs were sold exclusively at HomeGoods stores nationwide from March 2015 through May 2015 for about $400.
Hanging Chairs Recalled Due To Fall Hazard
Also in the same month, Big Lots recalled approximately 16,000 hanging chairs due to a fall hazard. The chairs can tip over when they face sideways and swing beyond the base.
The chairs are egg-shaped hanging chairs made from brown plastic wicker and have red seat cushions. They hang from a chain connected to a black metal pole and U-shaped base.
There have been 8 reports of chairs tipping while consumers were in them. The chairs were sold at Big Lots stores from December 2014 through January 2015 for about $300.
