Major office chair recall due to fall hazard

WASHINGTON, DC (WAVY) – If you have one of several types of office chairs at work or at home, you might want to check to see if it is under a recall.

More than 47,000 chairs are coming off the shelves because the manufacturer, Leggett & Platt, says the seat bolts and nuts can disconnect and fall off, causing a person to fall out of the chair.

The recall involves five brands of office chairs: Hon, Hugg, JSI, Sitmatic and VIA Seating.  The chairs were sold at Costco, OfficeMax, Office Depot, Staples and on-line between July 2015 and February 2017.
