I purchased the following product at Dollar Tree
http://www.dollartree.com/Laundry-Essentials-Mesh-Pop-Up-Hampers/p320736/index.pro
When I went to pick it up by the handle a wire inside it broke and gashed my forearm.
My forearm required medical attention and I received 5 stitches and had to get a tetanus shot.
Upon further inspection of this product it appears to be made with some type of extremely sharp wire.
I have emailed Dollar Tree and tried to contact via phone and have not gotten any response back
