RECALL: Target Patio Sets Due To A Fall Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Target of Minnesota, today announced a voluntary recall about 40,000 Home Patio Sets. The chair can collapse when weight is applied to the front end of the arm rests, posing a fall hazard to consumers. Target has received 35 reports of chairs collapsing, resulting in 18 injuries such as bruising to the back, hips, shoulders, arms and finger lacerations. This recall involves six-piece home patio sets sold exclusively at Target. The set consists of a table, an umbrella, and four chairs. The chairs and the umbrella have a black aluminum frame covered with a beige fabric. They were sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide and on its Web site from November 2006 through July 2007 for about $130 and manufactured in China.
Consumers should stop using the recalled patio sets immediately and return the entire six-piece set to any Target store for a full refund. For additional information, contact Target at 800-440-0680 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Central Time Monday through Friday, or visit site at http://www.target.com/b/ref=br_bx_0/602-8530099-4575829?ie=UTF8&node=1041388
