Columbus Camping Chairs Recalled for Mold Presence

On November 13, 2012, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (UPSC) announced that Basin and Columbus™ are voluntarily recalling certain folding camping chairs because the chairs may contain certain kinds of mold that can cause health problems.  Consumers should stop using these products immediately.  

The chairs were manufactured by Beststar Tourist Products Co., Ltd., in China and shipped to Rec-Out LLC in Atlanta, Georgia.  The folding camping chairs were then sold exclusively in Big 5 Sporting Goods Stores between April and October of 2012.  The units sold for about $15.  About 227 products are affected by this recall.  

Although no injuries have been reported, the chairs may contain certain types of mold that can cause harm to people with chronic health problems or weak immune systems.  The CPSC has not released information about specific types of mold in the chairs.  

The affected folding camping chairs by Basin model Columbus™ have style number CC3009-N printed on a label attached to the side of the chair.  The chair itself is made of blue polyester with foam-padding in the seat and back of the chair.  The folding camping chair has straps that can adjust the angle of the seat, and two handles are attached for transportation.  The word “Columbus” is printed on the outer side of the seat back above the pocket made of mesh.  

You can return this product to any Big 5 Sporting Goods store and receive a full refund.  Again, consumers need to stop using this product immediately.  

If you want to contact Rec-Out for more information, you can call the firm’s customer service line at (888) 885-9129 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET from Monday to Friday.
