Football season is in full swing, and happy fans are quickly turning sour after home team losses and personal injuries. You heard us right – personal injuries.
GCI Outdoor has recalled their BleacherBack Stadium Seats after one user fell four feet to the ground from the top of a set of bleachers during use.
The user suffered back and neck injuries after the backrest support of the stadium seat failed.
Consumers have been alerted to cease all use of the product completely and contact GCI Outdoor for a free strap repair kit that includes installation instructions, an additional safety strap, and a new warning label.
Sporting events are fun, but injuries are not. If you are purchasing items for the next big game, don’t forget that there are companies out there who put sales before safety. A product should be tested
