ATLANTA, GA (WCMH) – Home Depot is recalling about 265,000 patio chairs because they can reportedly break and cause injuries.
The Hampton Bay Fall River swivel dining and lounge chairs were sold in pairs or as a part of patio sets, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. They were sold at stores and online from October 2012 until January 2015 for about $200 for a set of two chairs to $550 for a 7-piece patio set.
The chairs are made of steel with a round swivel base and arm rests. The chairs have a red or green cushion, or are prepared for a custom slipcover with white liner fabric covering the cushions. Chairs were sold in either sets of two or as part of patio sets, which included accompanying patio tables.
So far, there have been more than 410 reports of the chairs breaking and at least 16 people have been injured.
Consumers should immediately stop using the chairs and contact Brown Jordan Services for a free repair kit.
