About 17,000 “Rocky” model swivel chairs have been recalled by Steelcase Inc., of Grand Rapids, Mich. The screws connecting the seat and back to the base of the chair can detach, posing a fall hazard to the user. This recall involves 12 models of Steelcase “Rocky” style swivel chairs manufactured between 2005 and 2015. The molded polypropylene chairs were sold in black and white with the option of an upholstered seat and back, seat only or no upholstery. The chairs have a foldable seat, molded-in arms and either a four-star wheel base or a five-star wheel base. Model numbers can be found on the underside of the seat. The company has received 311 reports of incidents, including one report of an injury.
The chairs were sold by Steelcase independently owned dealers nationwide from August 2005 to June 2015 for between $500 and $1,550.
