Wal-Mart is recalling about 73,400 card table and chair sets as they pose a fall hazard and a risk of finger injury -- including amputation.

Wal-mart says they have received 10 reports of injuries from collapsing chairs. Injury reports include one finger amputation, three fingertip amputations, sprained or fractured fingers and one report of a sore back

This recall involves the Mainstays brand card table sets with a black padded metal folding table and four black padded metal folding chairs. The table and chairs are made by Dongguan Shin Din Metal & Plastic Products Co and were sold from May 2013 through November 2013, for about $50.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled card table and chair sets and return the entire set to Walmart for a full refund.
