On Thursday, January 2, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced Wal-Mart Store Inc. was recalling a defective Mainstays brand card table and chair set due to reported incidents of back injuries and amputations.
Wal-Mart announced the recall of about 73,400 sets after the company received 10 reports of physical harm, including cases of finger and fingertip amputations. The sets in question were sold at different Wal-Mart shops in the U.S. and on its website from May to November 2013. Recalled product sets contain a label printed with words “Made by: Dongguan Shin Din Metal & Plastic Products Co.” placed underneath the chairs.
Product defects can leave unsuspecting consumers exposed to devastating harm, and those responsible for allowing dangerous products to make it into consumers’ hands need to be held accountable for their negligence.
