Adams Manufacturing Has Recalled Folding Chair

Portersville, Pa. (SafetyAlerts) - Adams Manufacturing Corp. has recalled about 2,740 plastic folding chairs. Some of the legs on these chairs were mis-assembled by the installer and a piece of the chair could be bent out of shape. This can allow the chair to collapse during use causing consumers to suffer injuries from falls.

Adams Manufacturing has received two reports of folding chairs collapsing. No injuries have been reported.

The folding chairs have the brand names Adams Quik Fold Chair (as individual chairs) and Quik Fold Café Set (as a set, including a table and two chairs). The recalled individual chairs include item numbers 8575-48-3750, 8575-16-3750 and 8575-38-3750. The recalled chair sets include item numbers 8590-48-3600, 8590-16-3600 and 8590-38-3600. The chairs are made of white, green or sandstone molded plastic. A label on the backrest of the chair reads "Adams Quick Fold Chair."

Discount department, hardware and home stores nationwide sold the folding chairs from February 2002 through March 2002 for about $20 for the individual chair and about $100 for the set.

Consumers should stop using the folding chairs immediately and return them to the place where purchased to receive a replacement chair or a refund. For additional information, contact Adams Manufacturing at (800) 237-8287 between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. Consumers also can visit the firm's web site at
