Swinging hammock chairs are being recalled by ShelterLogic Group due to injury risk

Hammock Chairs Recalled By ShelterLogic Group Due to Injury RiskShelterLogic Group is recalling about 786,000 RIO-branded swinging hammock chairs.

Improper insertion of the pins provided for assembly can cause the chair’s legs to collapse, posing an injury risk to the user.

ShelterLogic Group has received 24 reports of incidents that resulted in injuries such as bruises, aches and pains, head lacerations, back strain, concussions, and abrasions from consumers who fell while using the chair.

This recall involves RIO-branded swinging hammock chairs. The folding chairs have a black or gray metal frame, a fabric seat, and a backrest with a pillow. Some chairs have a drink holder.

They were sold in gray, navy, blue, red, and camouflage. RIO is printed below the pillow.

Only chairs with warning tags on the back of the chair’s backrest or armrest are included in this recall.

The chairs were sold at Blain’s Farm & Fleet, Camping World, Costco, Lowe’s, and Tractor Supply Company stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, CampingWorld.com, Costco.com, Lowes.com, Walmart.com, and other websites from January 2020 through June 2022. The price was between $40 and $60.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled chairs until they’ve reviewed the new instructions and the pins are properly inserted into the chair’s legs according to the instructions, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advise.

Consumers should contact ShelterLogic Group to receive the new instructions that will help verify proper and safe pin insertion. New instructions can also be found at www.Safety.ShelterLogic.com.
