This recall involves egg-shaped hanging chairs that are made from brown plastic wicker pattern mesh and have red seat cushions. They hang from a chain connected to a black metal pole and U-shaped base.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled hanging chairs and return the chair bases only to a Big Lots store for a full refund of the entire purchase price of the chair and base. Consumers can keep the chairs.
Big Lots has received eight reports of the hanging chairs falling in stores with consumers in them, including five reports of minor injuries.

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.
