Dollar General is recalling sling lounges due to amputation, laceration, and pinching hazard

Sling Loungers Recalled Due to Laceration  Pinching  and Amputation HazardDollar General is recalling about 155,000 True Living Sling Loungers.

The recalled loungers can collapse unexpectedly, posing an amputation, laceration, and pinching hazard if a finger gets caught in the metal folding joints.

The firm has received three reports of the sling loungers collapsing, resulting in amputations or lacerations to fingers from the metal folding joints.

This recall involves True Living Sling Loungers sold in 2019. The loungers have white frames with solid blue or solid green fabric. The 12-digit UPC number 430001047344 is located on the receipt.

The loungers were sold at Dollar General stores nationwide from January 2019 through September 2019 for about $20.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled sling loungers, cut the fabric of the chair to make it unusable, and contact Dollar General to return it for a refund, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advise. 

For more information, call Dollar General at 800-678-9258 from 6 a.m. to 1 a.m. CT Monday through Friday or visit and click on “Product Recalls” under “Help” at the bottom of the page.
