Recall of the Week: Pride Family Brand hammock stands due to fall hazard

Hamock-Stand-(hammock-not-iPride Family Brand is recalling about 13,900 Destination Summer hammock stands in the United States and 55 in Canada.

Z-shaped hooks that attach the hammock to the hammock stand can bend or break, resulting in a consumer falling to the ground, the company and commission said.

The firm has received 13 reports of the hooks bending or breaking, resulting in consumers falling and receiving injuries.

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.

The hammock stands were sold at Bed Bath & Beyond stores nationwide and online at www.bedbathandbeyond.com from March 2014 through July 2015 for about $100.

Consumers should immediately stop using the hammock stands, dispose of the Z-shaped hooks, and contact Pride Family Brands to obtain a free set of heavier-gauged, S-shaped replacement hooks, the company and commission said. 

For more information, call Pride Family Brands 855-612-9800 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit www.bedbathandbeyond.com and click on “Safety & Recalls” at the bottom of the page.
