The following news is from the CPSC on October 15, 2104.

Michael's Stores, Irving, Texas is recalling folding tables due to a fall hazard. The folding tables can collapse under excessive weight, posing an impact or falling hazard.
The Ashland Summer Living Vintage Wood Folding Table has a 14-inch round tabletop made of red medium density fiberboard. The table legs are brown metal, and the table stands about 22.5 inches high. A latch on the underside of the tabletop secures the table in an upright position when the table legs are separated forming an “X” position. When the table leg is released from this latch, the legs fold together and the tabletop folds down against the legs in a flat position. SKU 309950 and UPC 886946388804 are printed on a hangtag on the tables. Phase MDF and 01276 are printed on a black and white label under the table.
Michaels at (800) 642-4235 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. CT Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. CT Saturday, or online at www.michaels.com and click on "Contact Us."
There have been four reports of consumers sitting on the tabletop and falling when the tables collapsed, resulting in injuries to the back, leg or hip. Remedy
Consumers should immediately stop using the tables and return them to any Michaels store for a full refund. These were sold exclusively at Michaels Stores nationwide from April 2014 to May 2014 for about $30.
