Swinging furniture has massive appeal for being a comfortable, unique, and relaxing seating solution, but home goods retailer Pier 1 is now recalling more than 276,000 chairs and stands in the U.S. and Canada after numerous reports of fall injuries. The popular Swingasan chair has apparent stability issues, causing people to fall from the chair and seriously hurt themselves.
The nation's emergency rooms, clinics, and urgent care centers have been inundated with people who have sustained injury from one of the holiday season's hottest gifts: the hoverboard. While promo videos make using the device look easy, handling the board is much more difficult than it looks. In fact, online videos have caught thousands of painful falls from the device on camera.
