Wal-Mart recalls table sets due to finger amputation

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is recalling about 73,400 card table and chair sets because the chairs can unexpectedly collapse, creating a fall hazard or potential finger injury.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission posted on its website Thursday that Walmart has received 10 reports of injuries from collapsing chairs. Injury reports include one finger amputation, three fingertip amputations, sprained or fractured fingers and one report of a sore back, according to the commission's website.

The recalled units are the five-piece Mainstays card table sets with the black padded metal folding table and four black padded metal folding chairs. The company that made the chair cushions is printed on a white label on the bottom of the chairs: "Made by: Dongguan Shin Din Metal & Plastic Products Co," the commission's website states.

The sets were sold at Wal-Mart stores across the U.S. and on its website from May 2013 through November 2013 for about $50.

Consumers should immediately stop using the set and return it to a Walmart for a full refund. Individuals may contact Walmart at (800) 925-6278 from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. CT on Saturday, and from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. CT on Sunday.
