The standard folding table and four chairs are being pulled back by Wal-Mart because of a safety hazard the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission reported Thursday.
"The chairs can collapse unexpectedly, posing a fall hazard and a risk of finger injury, including finger amputation," the commission said in recall information on its website. Wal-Mart is recalling 73,400 of the product.
The sets were created by Dongguan Shin Din Metal and Plastic Products Co. and sold between May 2013 and November 2013 at $50 a piece according to the recall information.
The recall information lists Guangdong, China's Hershan Carnis Industrial Co as the product's manufacturer, and China and Taiwan as the cities. Wal-Mart then brought the product into the United States for sell.
Wal-Mart knows of 10 instances where people have become hurt due to the chairs dismantling. One person had their finger cut off while another had three fingertips removed the recall information said. Others had either sprained or broken fingers, with another case of an achy back.
Customers with affected furniture can give it back to Wal-Mart for a complete reimbursement the recall information said.
Customers can call Wal-Mart at (800)-925-6278 between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. central standard time Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. central standard time Saturday. Sunday's hours are 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. central standard time.
