Midwest Folding Products Stage & Riser Caddy Recall Lawsuit

The Stage and Caddy Riser, manufactured by Midwest Folding Products, was designed with the intentions of storing and transporting up to six stages and risers. Of significant concern, however, are recent reports that caution consumers of the dangers associated with Midwest Folding Products Stage & Riser Caddys. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the caddy’s latches do not automatically close to secure the stages and risers when stored. Unsecured stages and risers can fall off the caddies and onto consumers, resulting in potentially life-threatening injuries.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a Midwest Folding Products Stage & Caddy Riser included in this recall, you should contact our lawyers immediately for a free confidential case evaluation. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and we can help.

Midwest Folding Products Stage & Riser Caddy Recall Lawsuit Overview

As their name suggests, Midwest Folding Products Stage & Riser Caddys were designed to store and transport portable stages and risers. Their unique design allows consumers to conveniently store stages and risers in a folded position to maximize storage space. Specifications of the Midwest Folding Products Stage & Riser Caddy include:

  • Holds up to 8 platforms that are 4′ to 6′ long
  • Holds up to 6 platforms that are 8′ long
  • Strong steel frame
  • Casters for mobility
  • Fold stage or riser legs to hold multiple units
  • Black metal finish

Unfortunately, the CPSC, in cooperation with Midwest Folding Products, of Chicago, Ill., is announcing a voluntary recall of about 5,300 stage and riser caddies due to risk of injury and death to consumers. According to a press release issued by the CPSC, the caddy’s latches do not automatically close to secure the stages and risers when stored. The unsecured stages and risers have demonstrated an increased propensity to fall off the caddies and onto consumers. A 3-year-old girl died in May 2011 in Greenville, S.C., from severe head trauma when a portion of a portable stage fell out of the caddy and onto her at a church. If you or a loved one has been injured by these storage devices, you may be entitled to compensation for your suffering by filing a Midwest Folding Products Stage & Riser Caddy Recall lawsuit.

Midwest Folding Products Stage & Riser Caddy Recall

The current recall involves Midwest Folding Products’ caddies used to store collapsible stages and risers when they are not being used. The caddies are brown, gray or black metal and measure 44 inches long by 30 inches wide by 60 inches high. They hold six 96-inch long or eight 48 to 72-inch long stage or riser platforms. Yellow caution and instruction labels can be found on the caddy’s frame.

The recalled caddies were sold by Midwest Folding Products’ dealers to churches, schools, performing arts centers and various other organizations nationwide and online at Midwest Folding Products’ main page from January 1989 through March 2012 for about $1,200. Midwest Folding Products is directly contacting known purchasers of the caddies.
