Even though we're months away from water, sand and swimsuit season, IKEA has the MYSINGSÖ Beach Chair on its mind. The Swedish retailer announced last week that it's doing a of the folding chair due to a fingertip amputation hazard. Ouch!

The chairs were sold for about $25 from February 2013 through December 2016, but apparently they can collapse and fall, causing serious risk for your hands. In an email to customers, the retailer said the following: "IKEA has received 13 reports of incidents worldwide, including 10 injuries, six of which resulted in fingertip amputations. Three of those incidents, with one fingertip amputation injury, were reported in the U.S."


If you own one of these wooden chairs with a polyester fabric seat and bought it before February 2017, IKEA says you can return it to any store for a replacement or full refund — no proof of purchase necessary. For more information, visit .
