If you prefer your deck chairs to stay upright when you're sitting in them, this product is not for you.

Rite Aid is recalling its outdoor dining sets due to reports that the chair arms and legs can bend and cause the user to fall, posing a risk of injury. About 13,000 sets are involved in the recall.

The sets are a six-piece outdoor patio set containing four folding chairs, a table and an umbrella. The brown metal-frame chairs have a red canvas seat and back, while the umbrellas are 80 inches tall with a striped red canvas top. UPC number 011822350303 and item number 9034923 are printed on the packaging of the patio set.

The firm has received four reports of chairs bending unexpectedly, including four reports of injuries to the lower back and hip.

The sets were sold nationwide at Rite Aid stores and online from January 2015 to July 2015 for between $100 and $150.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled chairs and return them to any Rite Aid location for a full refund. Consumers are not required to return the table and umbrella.

Customers with questions should contact Rite Aid at (800) 748-3243.
