Cheyenne Products and Walmart have recalled Mainstay®-brand folding metal padded chairs and barstools due to an injury hazard.
The weld attaching the legs to the seat bottom can break, posing a fall hazard.
There were 41 reports of the weld connecting the legs to the bottom of the chair breaking, resulting in 19 injuries, including 4 people who suffered broken bones (fractures) and one report of a torn ligament.
The recalled chairs and barstools were sold exclusively at Walmart stores nationwide and Walmart.com from January 2014 to April 2021 for between $30 and $42.
The recall includes several styles of metal folding chairs and barstools with padded seats upholstered in vinyl or microfiber and sold under the Mainstay® brand name.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled folding chairs and barstools and contact Cheyenne for a full refund.
