Primal Vantage is recalling about 1,000 defective tree stands used by hunters.

The company received six reports of the cast aluminum platform breaking. Though no injuries were reported, this increases the risk the user can fall and suffer serious injuries.

The recall includes two 2014 models of hang-on tree stands: Ameristep Hyde Cliff Hanger with model number 2RX1H008C and date code JH-2014-3-6 and the Ameristep Hyde Sky Walker with model number 2RX1H009C and date code JH-2014-3-6. The date code is stamped on the back of the tree stand's aluminum seat frame. The model number is printed on the packaging and in the instruction manual.

The tree stands were sold at Bass Pro Shops and other sporting goods stores nationwide from July 2014 through November 2014 for between $220 and $250.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled product and contact Primal Vantage for a full refund.

For more information, consumers can contact Primal Vantage at (866) 972-6168.
