Folding Mini Beach Chairs RecalledApr 2, 2002 | AP
A California company is recalling about 100,000 folding mini beach chairs because they can collapse, potentially crushing or amputating fingers and toes.
Intercon Merchandising Source Inc., of City of Industry, has received reports of one incident in which a collapsing chair cut off the tip of a 3-year-old girl's finger, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (news - web sites) said Tuesday.
The recalled mini beach chairs, which can be used by children and adults, were given as free gifts with the purchase of a Time Out cosmetic product at Sears stores. The chairs are white aluminum with a blue canvas seat and back. "Time Out" is printed on the backrest.
Sears stores distributed the mini beach chairs with the purchase of $20 worth of Time Out cosmetics from June 2000 through August 2000.
