Jewett Cameron Company of North Plains, Ore., is recalling about 84,000 Playtime Pals Pop-Up Hideaway Hut children’s tents.
The fiberglass rod that supports the tent can break, splinter and become sharp, posing a laceration hazard to consumers.
The firm has received 270 reports of tent rods breaking, including two reports of bruises and lacerations.
This recall involves the Playtime Pals Pop-Up Hideaway Hut animal themed children’s tent.
The tent has four animal themes: hippo (pink), dog (brown), shark (blue) and tiger (orange).
All have a fiberglass rod that springs to deploy the tent to shape and provides the support for the nylon shell.
The tents, manufactured in China, were sold exclusively at Home Depot stores nationwide during November 2017 for about $13.
What to do
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled tents and return them to Home Depot for a full refund or store credit.
