JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – About 2 million swivel patio chairs -- sold exclusively at Home Depot -- are being recalled because the base of the chairs can break during normal use. There have been 25 reports of the chairs breaking, resulting in bruising and scrapes from falls.

This recall involves Hampton Bay Anselmo, Calabria, and Dana Point chairs as well as Martha Stewart Living branded Cardona, Grand Bank and Wellington swivel patio chairs. 

The chairs are made of aluminum and steel with a round swivel base and arm rests.

The chairs, sold in Home Depot stores and online at HomeDepot.com, were sold as a pair for about $190 and as part of a seven-piece patio set with accompanying tables for $500 -- from January 2007 to February 2016.

If you have one of these sets, the Consumer Product Safety Commission says you should stop using the chairs immediately and contact the manufacturer, Casual Living Worldwide, for a free repair kit.
