(AP) -- Walmart Stores Inc. is recalling about 73,400 Mainstays five-piece card table and chair sets because the chairs can unexpectedly collapse, posing a fall hazard or potential finger injury.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday that Walmart has received 10 reports of injuries, including one finger amputation, three fingertip amputations, sprained or fractured fingers and one report of a sore back.

The recall includes the Mainstays card table sets with a black padded metal folding table and four black padded metal folding chairs. "Made by: Dongguan Shin Din Metal & Plastic Products Co.," the company that made the chair cushions, is printed on a white label on the bottom of the chairs.

The sets were sold at Walmart stores across the U.S. and on its website from May 2013 through November 2013 for about $50.

Consumers should immediately stop using the set and return it to Wal-Mart for a full refund. Individuals may contact Walmart at (800) 925-6278 from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. CT on Saturday, and from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. CT on Sunday.
