30,000+ Chairs Recalled in Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Illinois Due to Collapsing
A few months ago, I almost bought one of the recalled chairs at TJ Maxx because I have a vision for our back patio. Right now, it is just rock and grossness but with a little money and super cute items, my neglected patio could be the go-to spot for my family in the summer. Now, I'm glad I didn't spend the cash on this egg chair because I may have had to spend more at the ER.
Here are a few details about the recall from the Consumer Product Safety Commission:
