NEW YORK (AP) - Pier 1 is recalling about 276,000 outdoor swing chairs and stands after reports from customers that they fell off them and were hurt.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday there were more than 100 reports of the chair either tipping over or falling from its stand. There were 27 reports of injuries.

The chairs and steel stands were sold separately at Pier 1 stores under the name Swingasan. Both items were sold for between $200 and $400 from January 2010 to August 2015.

The CPSC said customers should stop using the items and contact Pier 1 for a free repair kit or return them for a refund.

Pier 1 Imports Inc., based in Fort Worth, Texas, has more than 1,000 stores in the U.S. and Canada.
