Walmart is recalling more than 70 thousand card table and chair sets after reports of finger  amputation.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the metal folding chairs that come in the Mainstays 5-piece card table set, can unexpectedly collapse, posing a fall hazard or potential finger injury.

Walmart has received 10 reports of injuries associated with the chairs, including one finger amputation, three fingertip amputations, sprained or fractured fingers and one report of a sore back.

The table sets were sold exclusively at Walmart stores across the nation and online between May 2013 and November 2013 for about 50 dollars.
