Midwest Folding Products is voluntarily recalling about 5,300 storage caddies for portable stages and risers due to risk of injury or death. The caddy’s latches do not automatically close to secure the stages and risers when they are stored. The unsecured stages and risers can then fall off the caddies and onto consumers, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Chicago-based Midwest Folding Products said Wednesday. A 3-year-old girl in Greenville, S.C. died last year from severe head trauma after part of a portable stage fell out of the caddy and onto her.
