According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, there has been a recall of beach lounger chairs from Family Dollar.

On January 26, 2022, Family Dollar placed a recall on loungers because they can collapse. This unexpected collapse poses a potential injury hazard if your fingers are caught in the chair’s metal folding joints.

This recall involves about 38,300 items. The beach lounger chairs have a white metal frame and contain woven plastic fabric that is either red or blue.

If you have purchased one of these loungers, you can contact Family Dollar by calling the toll-free number--844-636-7687 (8 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET, Monday-Friday). You can also email to beachloungerrecall@familydollar.com.

The lounge chairs have a hang tag intended to be removed after purchase stating "Outdoors by Design" on one side and "Distributed by Midwoods Brands LLC" on the other side, along with either SKU 3499631 or SKU 3401281 above the bar code.
In addition, SKU 3499631 has a sewn-in label stating "Outdoors by Design" at the top and "Midwoods Brands LLC" near the bottom, and SKU 3401281 has a sewn-in label stating "WARNING" and "DO NOT REMOVE THIS TAG" near the top and "MADE IN CHINA" at the bottom. (Source.)

If you purchased this beach lounger chair that is being recalled, you can return this item to Family Dollar for a full refund.

Consumers can choose to email Family Dollar to obtain instructions on how to make the beach lounger unusable and provide a photo to Family Dollar. Once confirmed by Family Dollar, they will provide a refund to the consumer. (Source.)

So far no injuries have been reported. The beach loungers were sold nationwide at Family Dollar stores for the period of January 2019 through September 2021 at about $25.

The beach lounger chair was manufactured in China and imported by Midwood Brands LLC, which is an affiliate of Family Dollar of Chesapeake, Virginia. The name of the distributor is Shanghai Worth Garden Products in China. The recall number is 22-061.
