Walmart is recalling more than 70,000 card table and chair sets because of a risk of finger injuries including amputation.

The product being recalled is the Mainstays five-piece card table and chair sets. Officials say the metal folding chairs can unexpectedly collapse, posing a fall hazard or the potential for finger injury.

Walmart has had 10 reports of injuries including a finger amputation and three fingertip amputations.

The table sets were sold in stores and online between May and November of last year.

If you have this table set, officials say to stop using it and return the set to Walmart for a refund.
