According to a news article posted on wfmj.com, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission published a recall announced that affects more than 38,000 beach loungers retained at Family Dollar stores. The beach loungers sell for around $25. The recall notice states that the beach loungers may suddenly collapse and injure the user’s fingers if they are caught in the metal folding joints.
The recall affects Family Dollar beach lounge chairs with a white metal frame and blue or red woven plastic fabric. The recalled lounge chairs also have a hangtag that was supposed to be removed after purchase. The hangtag has “Distributed by Midwoods Brands LLC” on one side and “Outdoors by Design” printed on the other side. The product has an SKU of 3499631 or 3401281 printed above the product’s bar code. The product has a sewn-in label with “Midwoods Brands LLC” near the bottom and “Outdoors by Design” at the top. The product with an SKU 3401281 also has a label that is sewn onto the product with “WARNING” and “DO NOT REMOVE THIS TAG” printed toward the top and has “MADE IN CHINA” printed at the bottom.
Consumers are urged to immediately stop using these recalled beach loungers and are asked to return the chairs to a local Family Dollar store to receive a full refund. Customers may contact Family Dollar by email to receive instructions on making the beach lounger unusable and then how to send Family Dollar a picture to confirm the unit is destroyed. Family Dollar will then issue a refund to the customer.
