Tables and chairs from Walmart as well as child car seats are the latest items to be recalled from homes around the nation.
Walmart is recalling 73,000 card table and chair sets after some chairs collapsed and led to people losing fingertips and even an entire finger, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
CPSC reports there have been at least 10 injuries related to the sets, including four people who lost part or all of a finger.
The recalled sets are under Walmart’s Mainstays brand and sold for about $50 from May until November. The tables and chairs are black and padded.
If you have one of these table sets, return it to Walmart for a full refund. You can call Walmart for more information at 800-925-6278.
Another major recall this week is from Combi USA.
The Charlotte, N.C., company is recalling more than 33,000 child car seats made before January 2013 because the harnesses aren't strong enough to meet federal safety standards.
The models of the recalled seats are Coccoro, Zeus Turn and Zeus 360.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the seat straps don't meet minimum strength requirements. If there's a crash, children may not be properly secured.
A company spokeswoman says the seats are still safe to use because the harness as a whole meets safety standards. She says one part of the harness that includes a plastic button failed strength tests. Seats made after January 2013 don't have the same problem.
Combi will notify registered owners and send out free harness replacement kits starting in February. Owners can contact Combi at (800) 543-7734.
