Office Depot Recalls Desk Chairs

office depot chair recall

Office Depot has recalled about 34,000 desk chairs sold in the U.S. and Canada after a customer contacted the company when he injured himself after catching his finger in the chair’s tilting mechanism.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada disclosed the recall this week. A spokesman for Office Depot wasn’t immediately available for comment.

The Realspace PRO 3000 series desk chairs were made in China by Huichang Furniture Co. between March 2009 and May 2011, the safety commission said. Office Depot sold the chairs at stores and online from May 2009 through June 2011 for about $170 each.
