ABSTRACT
The article reports that Wal-Mart has voluntarily recalled the three wooden rocking chairs that it sold since spring 2004. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the recall was made because of too much curvature on the chairs' runners which can cause users to tip over. CPSC claims that Wal-Mart has received a total of 55 incident reports.
