The recalled hammock stand was sold under the Bed Bath & Beyond Destination Summer private label. The bronze-colored heavy gauge steel hammock stand with enamel finish measures 15 feet long by 3.5 feet wide by 4 feet high.
Consumers should immediately stop using the product, dispose of the Z-shaped hooks and contact Pride Family Brands to obtain a free set of heavier-gauged, S-shaped replacement hooks.
The firm has received 13 reports of the z-shaped hooks bending or breaking, resulting in consumers falling to the ground and injuring various body parts.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
