According to the March 10 recall notice from the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the affected folding tables’ “brace arms can fail to lock the table legs into place and the table can collapse, posing an injury risk to consumers.” Lifetime Products has received one report involving 11 tables with malfunctioning brace arms; no injuries have been reported.

The Vietnam-manufactured tables were sold at Lifetime Stores in Utah and Idaho, and online at,, and elsewhere, from August 2016 through November 2020, at a price of around $90 apiece. The tables — which measure 6 feet long, 18 inches wide and 28 inches tall — have gray metal frames with white plastic tops, and bear the model number 80176, found on a green product I.D. sticker on the underside of the table along with the date of manufacture. The recalled tables were built between Aug. 7, 2016, and June 23, 2020.

Lifetime Products advises owners to stop using the affected tables immediately and to contact the company for a free repair bracket. Owners can call Lifetime at 800-292-3865, email or go to and click on “Product Recall,” for more information. For more consumer product safety info, go to
