(CPSC release) The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recently announced the voluntary recall of more than 300,000 desk chairs sold at Office Depot in the U.S. and Canada between 2002 and 2008 due to a fall hazard.

According to the CPSC release:

The weld connecting the seat plate to the gas lift can fail, causing the chair to separate from the base.

Office Depot has received 11 reports of chairs breaking while consumers were seated. Minor injuries were reported as a result.

According to the CPSC, consumers should immediately stop using the chairs and contact Office Depot’s recall hotline to receive a $55 store card that may be used for a replacement chair or other store merchandise.
