Dangerous Product Advisory

The dangerous product attorneys at SHOOP | A PROFESSIONAL LAW CORPORATION warn of Stage and Riser Caddies, which have recently been recalled by Midwest Folding Products (in conjunction with the Consumer Products Safety Commission) due to unacceptable risk of injury or death - a young child tragically died when the caddy fell on her head.

The recalling firm, Midwest Folding Products, of Illinois, is instituting this voluntary recall of approximately 5,300 such units - stage and riser caddies - due to risk of injury and death to consumers.

The product defect associated with these various units involves the caddy's latches, which do not close automatically and secure adequately the stages and risers when stored. Unfortunately for consumers, these unsecured stages and risers have the potential to fall off the caddies and onto consumers, such as the little girl who lost her life. This 3-year-old girl died in Greenville, South Carolina, from severe head trauma when a piece of the portable stage fell out of the caddy.

This recall involves Midwest Folding Products' caddies used to store collapsible stages and risers when they are not being used. The caddies are brown, gray or black metal and measure 44 inches long by 30 inches wide by 60 inches high. They hold six 96-inch long or eight 48 to 72-inch long stage or riser platforms.

Caddy owners and consumers should immediately stop using the recalled stage and riser caddies.
