Approximately 73,400 Mainstays card table sets with black padded metal folding table and four black padded metal folding chairs have been recalled by Walmart. The product was made by Dongguan Shin Din Metal & Plastic Products Co. and was manufactured in China and Taiwan by Heshan Camis Industrial Co Ltd., of Guangdong, China.

The label can be found on the bottom of the chairs. Those who will be returning the product to the store will receive a refund.
