Walmart is recalling a five piece card table and chair set that has led to the amputation of at least one person’s finger.

 The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says the Mainstays set can unexpectedly collapse and has resulted in nearly a dozen injuries. Injury reports include on finger amputation and three fingertip amputations.


Walmart sold about 73,000 of the sets at its stores and online May through November of last year. The set sold for about $50.

Consumers are advised to stop using the set and return it to Walmart for a full refund. For more information contact Walmart at (800) 925-6278 from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. CT on Saturday, and from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. CT on Sunday
