Home Depot Recalls Patio Umbrellas
As reported in the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission
The Home Depot is recalling some large patio umbrellas because they may tip over and strike consumers, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.
According to the CPSC, the patio umbrella and its pole could tip over and strike consumers if the umbrella’s collar or sleeve is not removed prior to closing the umbrella, posing a risk of impact injury to consumers. Home Depot received one report of a recalled patio umbrella tipping over and breaking, but no injuries were reported.
