4Seasons has issued a recall for their Folding Lounge Chair. The chair can easily tip or recline too quickly, which poses a fall hazard.
About 3,200 of the chairs have been recalled. The company has received five reports of falls occurring in Ross Stores, three of which involved minor injuries. Customers should stop using the chairs and carefully cut out a 5 inch by 5 inch piece of the fabric on the seat of the chair, rendering the chairs unusable, and removing the manufacturer’s tag from the back of the chair. 4Seasons will provide a full refund to all consumers who present the cut-out fabric and tag.
This recall involves three colors of 4Seasons folding lounge chairs. The chairs are made of steel tube frames and textilene fabric with attached head cushion in orange, turquoise or brown. The chairs are approximately 3 feet 6 inches tall. The affected product SKU numbers are 400085136029 (bronze fabric and frame), 400085136036 (turquoise fabric and a white frame), and 400085136043 (orange fabric and a white frame). SKU numbers can be found on the retailer’s hang tag attached to one of the arms of the chair. There’s a separate manufacturer’s tag sewn on the back of the chair that says “Weight limit – 250 lbs.” and “Made in China.”
The chairs were purchased exclusively from Ross Stores nationwide between April and June 2013, for about $40.
