Three models of Stargaze recliner chairs have been recalled from the consumer market after they were found to pose a falling hazard.
The popular camping or portable outdoor chairs were sold in specialty outdoor stores, at REI both online and in-store, as well as on NemoEquipment.com for roughly $180 to $220.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which issued the recall advisory, the plastic joint that supports the attached legs can break and cause the user to fall.
The models affected were the Stargaze Recliner, Stargaze Recliner Low and Stargaze Recliner Luxury lifestyle camping chairs.
The chairs (pictured above) come with a black, padded carrying case. The three manufacturing lots of this recall are marked with date codes of either November 2017, December 2017, March 2018 or May 2018.
To find the date, look at the plastic hub on the inside edge of the leg strug. The date code is fashioned in a clock format. See the pictures below for a description.
Consumers have been advised to immediately stop using the recalled chairs, of which 7,500 were recalled. There were 14 reports of the joint supports breaking. In February 2018, another 15,500 units were recalled for the same reason.
