The CPSC, in cooperation with three companies, has announced a voluntary recall of 1,800,000 children’s folding chairs as a result of serious risks to children’s fingers, including amputation. Consumers should stop using all of these products immediately.

Recall #1

522,000 Kid’s Folding Chairs manufactured in China and distributed by Fourstar Group Inc., of Hopkinton, Massachusetts.

The chair’s safety lock can fail, allowing the chair to collapse or fold unexpectedly. Children’s fingers can become caught or entrapped in the hinge and slot areas of the chair, posing a pinch or cut hazard. This can cause severe lacerations and finger tip amputations to children’s fingers.

CPSC and Fourstar Group are aware of three incidents involving children. One resulted in a laceration to the finger and three finger fractures, the second incident resulted in a fracture and laceration to the fingers, and the third incident resulted in a pinched finger.

The recalled kid’s folding chairs are made of metal tubing with a vinyl padded seat and seat back. They were sold in red, blue, yellow, green, pink, and lavender solid colors. They also come in pink with “Princess” printed in red on the seat and seat back along with stars, crowns and hearts, or in blue with pictures of basketballs, soccer balls, footballs, football helmets, and rollerblades.

The recalled chairs were sold individually or as part of a set consisting of a table and two chairs. Each chair is about 22-inches high, 13.5-inches wide, and about 11.5-inches deep. “MANUFACTURED BY FOURSTAR GROUP INC.” OR “IMPORTED BY FOURSTAR INTERNATIONAL TRADING COMPANY” is written on a label located underneath the seat of the chairs.

The chairs were sold at discount and grocery stores nationwide from July 2003 through July 2005 for about $5 individually or about $25 for a set.

Consumers should stop using the chairs immediately, and contact Fourstar for instructions on how to receive a free repair kit to replace the locking pin.

Consumers should call Fourstar Group toll-free at (866) 290-6191 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. Consumers can also visit the firm’s Web site at www.fsgrecall.com

The chair’s safety lock can fail, allowing the chair to collapse or fold unexpectedly. Children’s fingers can become caught or entrapped in the hinge and slot areas of the chair, posing a pinch or cut hazard. This can cause severe lacerations and finger tip amputations to children’s fingers.

CPSC and Idea Nuova are aware of five incidents involving children. In one incident, there was a finger tip amputation, the second incident involved a finger tip amputation and a laceration, and the third incident involved a finger fracture and a laceration.

The chairs were sold at discount department and toy stores nationwide from September 2004 through June 2005 for between $15 and $25 per set.

Recall #3

CPSC, Meco Corp. Announce Recall of Children’s Folding Chairs

175,000 Juvenile Folding Chairs manufactured in China for Meco Corp., of Greeneville, Tennessee.
Children’s fingers can become caught or entrapped in the hinge and slot areas of the chair, posing a pinch or cut hazard.

In 2004, Meco recalled red-colored children’s folding chairs because paint on the chair contained excessive lead levels, posing a lead poisoning hazard to young children.

CPSC and Meco are aware of three incidents. Two resulted in pinched fingers and there was one laceration to a child’s finger.

The recalled children’s folding chairs have safety locks under the seat. The chairs are made of metal tubing with a vinyl padded seat and seat back. They were sold in red, blue, yellow and green colors as a part of a set consisting of a table and four chairs. Each chair is about 22-inches high, 10-inches wide, and about 11-inches deep. “Meco” or “Samsonite” is printed on the label underneath the seat bottom.

The chairs were sold at furniture and wholesale club stores nationwide from July 2003 through May 2005 for between $25 and $40.

Consumers should immediately stop using the chairs and contact Meco for instructions on receiving a refund.
Consumers should call Meco at (800) 251-7558 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or e-mail Meco’s customer service at csr@meco.net Consumers can also visit the company’s Web site at www.meco.net
