The Pier 1 Imports recalled close to 276,000 outdoor swinging chairs and stands after multiple fall and injury reports.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, there were at least 100 separate incidents where the swinging chair either tipped over or fell from its metal stand resulting in 27 reported injuries.

The recalled Pier 1 Import swinging chairs sold under the name Swingasan between January 2010 and August 2015 throughout the United States and Canada.  The Swingasan chairs and stand were dangerously unstable after a person sat in them.

Pier 1 Imports is offering free repair kits to consumers who purchased the recalled swinging chairs.
