August 7, 2002Adams Manufacturing Has Recalled Folding
- 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
