Task chairs may cause injuries

September 06, 2009|Times Staff and Wire Reports

About 216,000 OfficeMax Task Chairs, made in China and imported by OfficeMax Inc., are being recalled because the chair's back and base post can break while in use, causing falls. The company has received about 35 reports of the chair backs or posts breaking, including 15 reports of injuries involving cuts, bruises, muscle strains and concussions.

The recalled chairs have model numbers OM182 and OM96614, which are located under the chairs' seats on a white label. The chairs come in charcoal or dark charcoal. They have black plastic arms and a rolling plastic and metal base.

The chairs were sold at OfficeMax stores nationwide, through the company's website and catalogs and by direct sales to businesses from September 2003 to July 2008. Information: (800) 283-7674, www .officemax.com or www.cpsc .gov.
