Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has agreed to recall about 165,000 footstools because they can collapse, causing users to fall and injure themselves, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.

There were seven reports of injuries with the Home Trends Wood Footstools, including a broken neck and toe, as well as a slight concussion and whiplash, the agency said.

The stool is 11.5 inches tall and has a sticker on it with the UPC number: 87065900001. They were manufactured in Malaysia and sold in stores for about $10 from December 2005 to September 2006.

The CPSC advised consumers who bought the stool to return it to Wal-Mart, the world’s largest retailer, to get a refund.
