9,000 double hammocks recalled from marketplace

About 9,000 double hammocks imported by Collections Etc. Inc. are being recalled because wooden rods on the product may break, causing the hammocks to collapse, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Friday.

The recall involves green hammocks measuring 185 cm by 116 cm sold through online retailers and catalogue from May 2007 through August 2007 for about $20 US.

The company has learned of five associated incidents, involving minor cuts, sore necks and backs.

People should stop using the hammocks and contact the company for a refund.
