Fall risks prompt swivel chair recall

Posted on January 20, 2016 4:28 pm under Product Liability

Office Depot has recalled approximately 300,000 units of their Crawley II Executive swivel chairs, based on a notice issued by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on January 7. According to the notice, the weld on the seat plates is prone to breaking and could lead to users falling and injuring themselves. The company has already been informed of eight cases of the weld fracturing and breaking, although thankfully no injuries have been reported yet.

The recalled chairs have a black base and five wheels, and they are black, adjustable, and high-backed. The chairs involved in the recall have the following labels under the seat cushion:

  • An Office Depot SKU number 493822, or
  • An OfficeMax item number 23324118, and
  • A US REG. No. PA 25917(CN)

The faulty chairs were sold from October 2012 until September 2015 at Office Depot, OfficeMax, and online stores throughout the country. Office Depot is providing a free seat plate replacement and is encouraging consumers to stop using the chairs.

Faulty manufacturing like this could result in very serious injuries to consumers.
