PhotoBrown Jordan Services of St. Augustine, Fla., is recalling about 271,000 swivel dining and lounge chairs sold in the U.S. and Canada.

 

The base of the chair can break during normal use, posing a fall hazard.

 

The firm has received 410 reports of the swivel chairs breaking, including 16 reports of injuries -- primarily bruises and abrasions resulting from falls.

 

This recall involves Hampton Bay Fall River swivel dining and lounge chairs. The chairs are made of steel with a round swivel base and arm rests, red or green cushion, or are prepared for a custom slipcover with white liner fabric covering the cushions.

 

Chairs were sold in either sets of two or as part of patio sets, which included accompanying patio tables.

 

The chairs, manufactured in China, were sold exclusively at Home Depot nationwide and online at homedepot.com from October 2012, through January 2015, for about $200 for a set of two chairs to $550 for a 7-piece patio set.
