Finger amputations force Wal-Mart to recall tens of thousands of folding table and chair sets

View all news posts

Wal-Mart has recalled more than 73,000 folding card table sets because the chairs can collapse unexpectedly and have caused finger and other injuries.

The retail giant has received 10 reports of injuries from collapsing chairs in the Mainstays five-piece set, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The reported injuries include a finger amputation, three fingertip amputations and fractured fingers.

The sets, made by Dongguan Shin Din Metal & Plastic Products Co., were sold at Wal-Mart stores across the U.S. and on its website from May until November 2013. They cost about $50.

The consumer product safety commission is urging anyone who bought the set to stop using it immediately and return it to a Wal-Mart for a full refund.
