HomeGoods Recalls Swinging Chairs Following Reports of Minor Injuries
Discount retailer HomeGoods is recalling a swinging chair following more than 10 reports of the chair tipping over while it was being used.
Of 11 complaints, four included reports of injury to adults and one baby. About 250 chairs are included in the recall.
Big Lots this week recalled about 16,000 similar chairs after the company also received complaints of consumers sustaining minor injuries when the chairs tipped over.
The green, apple-shaped swing chairs, and brown, teardrop-shaped swing chairs hang from a chain connected to a metal stand with a circle-shaped base. The chairs are made from plastic rattan and have red cushions.
They were sold at HomeGoods stores nationwide from March 2015 through May 2015 for about $400.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled swing chairs and return them to a HomeGoods store for a full refund.
