Yotrio recalls its faulty lounge chairs

Yotrio International LLC is voluntarily recalling its lounge chairs because they can collapse and hurt users.

The Orinda, Calif.-based company is recalling 15,000 lounge chairs in co-operation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the federal consumer products watchdog said Friday.

Yotrio blamed the chairs' faulty support brackets and weak frames. It has received one report of a chair collapsing and causing the user to fall to the ground. But no injuries have been reported.

The recall applies to Yotrio's Rockingham deluxe reclining chairs, which have an orange mesh covering that attaches to a steel frame by a woven cord. They were sold at Menard stores from March to May 2007 for between $40 and $60 US.

Owners should stop using the chairs immediately and return them to Menard for a full refund.
