Office Depot voluntarily recalls office chairs

Friday 6 April 2012

The Consumer Product Safety Commission today announced a voluntary recall of Office Depot'-branded "Biella" office chairs because a critical weld could fail, causing the chair to come apart and dump you on the floor."The weld connecting the seat plate to the gas lift can fail, causing the chair to separate from the base," says the CPSC announcement. "This poses a fall hazard to consumers."The "Biella" black leather desk chair, which sold between January 2002 and December 2008, is the affected product. About 307,000 chairs in the U.S. and 12,000 chairs sold in Canada are affected. Office Depot received 11 reports of chairs breaking while someone was sitting in them, leading to injuries that included contusions and abrasions. The chairs were made by a Chinese firm, Wonderful Year.
