RECALL: Family Dollar recalls beach loungers due to injury hazard

Family Dollar is recalling over 38,000 beach loungers nationwide as they can collapse unexpectedly, posing an injury hazard if fingers get caught in the metal folding joints.

The chairs were sold at Family Dollar stores nationwide and online at www.familydollar.com from January 2019 through September 2021 for about $25.

This recall involves beach lounge chairs with a white metal frame and either red or blue woven plastic fabric. The lounge chairs have a hang tag intended to be removed after purchase stating “Outdoors by Design” on one side and “Distributed by Midwoods Brands LLC” on the other side, along with either SKU 3499631 or SKU 3401281 above the bar code.

In addition, SKU 3499631 has a sewn-in label stating “Outdoors by Design” at the top and “Midwoods Brands LLC” near the bottom, and SKU 3401281 has a sewn-in label stating “WARNING” and “DO NOT REMOVE THIS TAG” near the top and “MADE IN CHINA” at the bottom.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled beach loungers and return them to a Family Dollar store for a full refund. Consumers can also email Family Dollar for instructions to make the beach lounger unusable and to then provide Family Dollar a photo. Once confirmed, Family Dollar will provide a refund to the consumer.
