What's the Problem?
This recall affects multiple styles of metal folding chairs and bar stools with padded seats upholstered in vinyl or microfiber and sold under the Mainstay brand name, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) .
"The weld attaching the legs to the seat bottom can break, posing a fall hazard," CPSC said. "The firm has received 41 reports of incidents of the weld connecting the legs to the bottom of the chair breaking, resulting in 19 injuries, including four reports of fractures and one report of a torn ligament."
A white sticker label on the bottom of the seats includes the name "Cheyenne Products" or "Cheyenne Industries" and lists the production date by month and year. Another white sticker label on the bottom of the seat features a barcode with the model number printed above the barcode, and the UPC printed below the barcode.
The recalled furniture was sold online and at Walmart stores nationwide from January 2014 through April 2021 for between $30 and $42.
If you purchased any bar stools or folding chairs that are affected by this recall, you should stop using them and contact Cheyenne for a full refund.
This recall began on May 19, 2021.
What are Bar Stool Injuries?
A bar stool injury may occur if a person falls off of a bar stool, most often in a restaurant or bar setting. Bar stool injuries are similar to injuries that are related to defective folding chairs.
However, bar stool injuries are typically more dangerous because of their height. Falls may occur for a variety of reasons, including:
- Weakness in the supporting parts of the stool;
- Cheap materials used in constructing the stool;
- Failure to repair old or worn parts of the stool; and
- Various other causes and fall hazards.
The injuries that result from a bar stool accident may include:
- Broken bones, especially in the arm and wrist areas when trying to break a fall; and
- Back injuries, especially injuries to the tailbone.
Certain bar stool injuries may be severe and may result in long-term conditions or disabilities.
