The folding chairs have a black or gray metal frame, a fabric seat and a backrest with a pillow. Some chairs have a drink holder. They are sold in gray, navy, blue, red, and camouflage and RIO is printed below the pillow.

Only chairs with warning tags on the back of the chair’s backrest or armrest are included in this recall.

The chairs were manufactured in China and sold at Blain’s Farm & Fleet, Camping World, Costco, Lowe’s and Tractor Supply Company stores nationwide and online at,,, and and other websites from January 2020 through June 2022 for $40 to $60.
