Dollar General Sling Loungers Recalled Due Possible Finger Amputation
Dollar General has voluntarily recalled the True Living Sling Loungers due to the possibility of suddenly losing fingers if they get caught in the metal folding joints.
According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission the metal folding joints can cause at the least pinching and laceration and the worst would be complete finger amputation.
These loungers were sold in 2019. They have white frames with solid blue or solid green fabric. The 12-digit UPC number 430001047344 is located on the receipt.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled sling loungers, cut the fabric of the chair rendering it unusable, and contact Dollar General to return the recalled loungers for a full refund of the purchase price.
Dollar General at 800-678-9258 from 6 AM to 1 AM CT, Monday through Friday or online at www.dollargeneral.com and click on “Product Recalls” under “Help” at the bottom of that page for more information.
The firm has received three reports of the sling loungers collapsing, resulting in amputations or lacerations to fingers from the metal folding joints.
Dollar General stores nationwide from January 2019 through September 2019 for about $20.
