The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with the firms named below, today announced two voluntary recalls of the following <"https://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/product_liability">defective products:  Rio Brands’ High-Boy Beach Chairs and Hammocks Sold by LivingXL.

Approximately 800 Rio Beach® High-Boy Folding Beach Chairs have been recalled for a fall hazard:  The rear leg of the chair can break.  Rio Brands, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is the manufacturer and the Rio Beach® High-Boy Folding Beach Chairs were made in China.  To date, Rio Brands received one report of an incident that involved minor bruises.

The Rio Beach® High-Boy folding beach chairs have aluminum tubing frames, striped or solid color fabric slings, and wooden arms with an attached storage pouch that has a cell phone pocket.  “Rio Beach® High-Boy,” the UPC number, and the model number all can be found on the hand tag and on a sticker on the rear leg; the recalled chairs sold in retail stores nationwide from January 2008 through March 2008, retailing for between $40 and $50.  The recalled Rio Beach® High-Boy folding beach chairs contain the following UPC and model numbers:

  • UPC #:  SC640-702; Model #:  0-80958-26396-2
  • UPC #:  SC640-812; Model #:  0-80958-26465-5
  • UPC #:  SC640-818; Model #:  0-80958-26466-2
  • UPC #:  SC640-8182; Model #:  0-80958-27165-3
  • UPC #:  SC641-084-BB; Model #:  0-80958-27015-1

Consumers should immediately stop using the chairs and return them to the location where purchased for a full refund.  For additional information, call Rio Brands at (800) 866-8520 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.riobrands.com.

Approximately 400 LivingXL hammocks sold by LivingXL have been recalled.  This recall is also for a fall hazard to consumers.   Both the Multi Texteline Hammocks and Striped Quilted Hammocks were sold by the retailer Think Big Products LLC—doing business as:  LivingXL—of Canton, Massachusetts and were imported by CMRG Apparel, LLC, of Canton, Massachusetts.  The LivingXL hammocks were manufactured in India and sold by LivingXL’s catalog or at www.LivingXL.com from May 2007 through October 2007.  The LivingXL hammocks retailed for between $170 and $200.

The Living XL hammocks’ metal frame can crack and break, causing a consumer to fall to the ground; LivingXL has received three reports of injuries, including lower back pain and broken ribs, following a hammock collapse wherein the frame broke or cracked.

The recalled hammocks are Model X1010 Multi Texteline Hammock and Model X1011 Striped Quilted Hammock.  Both Living XL hammocks consist of a metal frame and cloth hammock.  The metal frame is made of steel, is beige in color, and has five pieces, including two foot brackets.  The model number is located on the hammock’s packaging and/or instruction sheet.

Consumers should immediately stop using the hammocks and contact LivingXL for instructions on returning the hammock to receive a full refund.  LivingXL is directly notifying consumers who purchased the hammock about the recall.  For additional information, contact LivingXL at (800) 535-7639 extension 7777 anytime, or visit the company’s Web site at www.LivingXL.com.

As a survivor of the 9/11 disaster zone, I really appreciate the direction, support, and friendliness of working with Parker Waichman in submitting my VCF claim. It would not have been possible without their dedicated assistance (and sometimes hand holding!) I would like to give a special shout out to Tina who was a joy to work with. She makes you feel that YOUR claim is the only one she is working on and YOUR claim is THE most important one on her desk. I recommend Parker Waichman to my former colleagues and friends who need help organizing their files for VCF fund consideration.
