Hayneedle Inc., of Omaha, Neb., has recalled 131 Shorea Wooden Arc Hammock Stands. The layers of wood in the stand can separate and fail, causing the stand to break and posing a fall hazard. The firm received 18 reports of incidents, including one injury that required medical attention. The recalled Shorea wood hammock stands are natural colored with an arc-shaped holder standing perpendicular to two base pieces. The stand is 14.5 feet long, 5 feet wide and 4.25 feet high. The stand is compatible with spreader bar hammocks, which are sold separately. The item/model number VFA042-1 is printed on the packaging.
The Hammocks were sold at Hammocks.com during June and July 2012 for about $380. Consumers should immediately stop using the hammock stand and return it to Hayneedle. Hayneedle is offering consumers a full refund, including return shipping costs, or a substitute hammock stand at no additional charge. Hayneedle has directly contacted consumers who purchased the hammock stands.
