REI is recalling an outdoor rocking chair that may not be very relaxing for its user.

The company is issuing the voluntary recall for the evrgrn Campfire Rocker Chair after reports that the product can tip backwards while rocking, posing a fall hazard. REI believes that about 30,500 chairs are impacted by this defect.

The collapsible rocking chairs were sold in blue, gray, green, and orange fabric supported by four metal tubes and wooden rockers at the base. A small black tab is attached to the edge of the fabric seat containing the word evrgrn. The chair comes in a portable bag whose color matches that of the fabric seat.

Consumers could purchase these chairs at REI stores nationwide and at REI's website from April 2015 through August 2015 for about $100.

REI has received four reports of children who have tipped over in the rocker chairs while in the store. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled chairs and contact REI for a free replacement or a full refund.

Customers with questions about the recall can contact REI at (800) 426-4840.
