Importer Swinton Avenue Trading, of Boca Raton, Fla., and the manufacturer Wonderful Year Inc., of China have recalled Office Depot® Brand Biella Leather Desk Chairs. This includes about 307,000 in the U.S. and 12,000 in Canada. The weld connecting the seat plate to the gas lift can fail, causing the chair to separate from the base. This poses a fall hazard to consumers. Office Depot has received 11 reports of the chairs breaking and consumers falling while seated, resulting in reports of injuries, including minor contusions and abrasions. This recall involves Office Depot® brand leather desk chairs. The mid-back height leather chairs were sold in black and have SKU number 130548. “REG. No. PA-25498 (CN)” and “Made in China” are printed on a label located on the underside of the seat.
The chairs were sold exclusively at Office Depot retail stores nationwide and online at www.OfficeDepot.com from January 2002 through December 2008 for about $55. 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. For additional information, contact Office Depot’s recall hotline toll-free at (866) 403-3763 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit their website at www.officedepot.com
