DULUTH, MN — Hunters, heads up: you may have a recalled tree stand.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall for the Field and Stream Timberline Hang On tree stands due to a fall hazard.
Officials say the weld on the seats can break loose and cause the seat to fall from the tree.
The stands are brown metal with a black canvas seat that has the words “Field & Stream” printed on the bottom of it.
The letters “HEH01566” followed by “FS080117” or “FS090117” are printed on the arm of the tree stand between the seat and the safety platform.
If you own a seat, you’re asked to immediately stop using the recalled tree stands and return them to the nearest DICK’S Sporting Goods or Field & Stream store for a full refund or store credit.
So far, there have been three reports of the tree stand seats breaking; however, no injuries have been reported.
The items were sold at the following locations from September 2017 through January 2019:
- DICK’S Sportng Goods nationwide
- Field & Streaqm stores nationwide
