(Consumer Product Safety Commission)

WASHINGTON (WHTM) – Office Depot is recalling 300,000 executive chairs because the weld on the seat plate can break, posing a fall hazard to consumers.

Office Depot has received eight reports of the seat plate weld cracking or breaking, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. No injuries have been reported.

The Crawley II models are black, high-back, adjustable chairs with a black base with five wheels. The affected chairs have Office Depot SKU number 493822 or OfficeMax item number 23324118 and “US REG. No. PA 25917(CN)” printed on a label located on the underside of the seat cushion.

The chairs were sold at Office Depot and OfficeMax stores and online from October 2012 through September 2015 for about $140.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled chair and contact Office Depot to receive a free replacement seat plate that consumers can install at home.
