Stage and Riser Caddies Recall

There have been a series of home and commercial product recalls. Below are details regarding the Stage and Riser Caddies.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Midwest Folding Products, of Chicago, Illinois, is announcing a voluntary recall of about 5,300 stage and riser caddies due to risk of injury and death to consumers. The caddies are used to transport stages & risers to event locations and hold each unit until legs are folded open and the unit is rotated to the floor. The recalled caddies were sold by Midwest Folding Products dealers to churches, schools, performing arts centers and various other organizations nationwide and online at http://www.midwestfolding.com from January 1989 through March 2012 for about $1,200. Back in May 2011, a 3-year old girl from Greenville, South Carolina died from severe head trauma when a portion of a portable stage fell out of the caddy and onto her at a church. Caddy owners and consumers should immediately stop using the recalled stage and riser caddies. Caddy owners should contact Midwest Folding Products to receive a free repair kit with new brackets that will allow latches to automatically return to the closed position on the caddies and new white warning and instruction labels.

If you have purchased a product and suspect that the product poses health or safety hazards, contact Khorrami, LLP for a co
