Big Lots has issued a recall of approximately 16,000 hanging chairs. The recalled chairs can tip over when they face sideways and swing beyond the base, posing a fall hazard to the user.
This recall involves egg-shaped hanging chairs that are made from brown plastic wicker pattern mesh and have red seat cushions. They hang from a chain connected to a black metal pole and U-shaped base.
The recalled chairs were sold exclusively at Big Lots stores nationwide from December 2014 through January 2015 for about $300, including the base.
Big Lots has received eight reports of the hanging chairs falling in stores with consumers in them, including five reports of minor injuries.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled hanging chairs and return them to Big Lots for a full refund. Consumers can discard the base.
