AUSTIN (KXAN/NBC) — Outdoor retailer REI is recalling more than 30,000 campfire rocker chairs.

The chair can tip backwards while rocking, posing a hazardous risk of falling.

REI is aware of four incidents of children who have tipped over in the chairs while in REI stores.

No injuries have been reported.

The collapsible rocking chairs were sold in blue, gray, green and orange fabric in REI stores and online from April through August.

Consumers should stop using them and contact REI for a free replacement or a full refund.
