Target pulls patio sets from marketplace

Minneapolis-based Target is withdrawing about 40,000 home patio sets because the chairs may collapse, presenting a fall danger to users.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday the company has learned of 35 associated incidents, involving finger lacerations and bruises to the back, hips, shoulders or arms.

The recall applies to six-piece home patio sets with black aluminum frames and beige fabric sold through Target stores and on its website from November 2006 through July 2007 for about $130 US.

Consumers should stop using the patio sets and return them to the store for a refund.
