If you bought a Mainstay-five piece card table and chair set from Wal-Mart return it ASAP.

The popular discount store is recalling more than 73,000 sets because the chairs can unexpectedly collapse, posing a fall hazard or potential finger injury.

On Thursday the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wal-Mart has received 10 reports of injuries, including one finger amputation, three fingertip amputations, sprained or fractured fingers and one report of a sore back.

The recall includes the Mainstays card table sets with a black padded metal folding table and four black padded metal folding chairs.
The sets were made by Dongguan Shin Din Metal & Plastic Products Co.

The sets were sold at Wal-Mart stores across the U.S. and on its website from May 2013 through Nov. 2013 for about $50.

If you have one of these sets you should immediately stop using it and return it to Wal-Mart for a full refund.
