Walmart recalling card table, chairs set due to injury risk

(WVVA) - Walmart is recalling more than 70,000 card table and chair sets after reports of finger injuries, including amputation.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the metal folding chairs that come in the Mainstays 5-piece card table set can unexpectedly collapse, posing a fall hazard or potential finger injury.

The set includes a black padded metal folding table and four chairs that are marked ‘Made by: Dongguan Shin Din Metal & Plastic Products Co.' on a white label on the bottom of the chairs.

So far, Walmart has received 10 reports of injuries associated with the chairs, including one finger amputation, three fingertip amputations, sprained or fractured fingers and one report of a sore back.

The table sets were sold exclusively at Walmart stores across the nation and online between May 2013 and November 2013 for about $50.

The CPSC advises owners to stop using the set immediately and return it to Walmart for a refund.
