2M Home Depot Patio Chair Recall Issued After Reports of Falls, Injuries
More than two million patio chairs sold exclusively at Home Depot are being recalled, after more than two dozen reports of problems where the bases of the chairs broke, resulting in falls and injuries for consumers.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the Home Depot patio chair recall on January 31, indicating that at least 25 consumer reports suggest the base of the chairs may break during normal use, resulting in bruising, scrapes and fall injuries.
According to the CPSC, consumers were not aware of any defects or visual signs of instability when the fall incidents occurred, nor were the chairs reportedly being used in an improper fashion.

Included in the recall are over two million Swivel Patio chairs that were sold under the brand names Hampton Bay Anselmo, Calabria, and Dana Point chairs, and also under the Martha Stewart Living branded Cardona, Grand Bank, and wellington swivel patio chairs.
The recalled chairs are made of an aluminum steel with a round swivel base and arm rests. The swivel chairs were sold as either a pair or as part of a seven-piece patio set with accompanying tables and four-legged chairs.
The chairs were manufactured in China by Casual Living Worldwide, of Simpsonville, Kentucky. They were imported and sold exclusively at Home Depot stores nationwide and online at HomeDepot.com from January 2007 to February 2016 for about $190 for the two-piece set and $500 for the seven-piece patio set.

We were using hampton bay swivel chairs up until November of 2022 when I was sitting on the chair and without any time to react the chair snapped, leaving me in pretty bad shape. I could hardly walk for the longest time. I could only take about 10-15 steps before doubling over from 2 herniated disc's I got from my fall and God only knows what else This has been a traumatic experience for me.

There should be a way we could get a class action lawsuit or something, because home depot doesn't even acknowledge injuries past bruises it seems.
