Steelcase Recalls Desk Chairs for Possible Fall Risk

By Grant Law Office on January 31, 2012

Steelcase, Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently announced a product recall of about 11,000 Steelcase office chairs. The pivot pins inside the chair’s control mechanism can fall out easily, which can lead to a nasty fall if someone is sitting in the chair. So far, neither Steelcase nor the CPSC has heard of any cases in which a person was actually hurt, however.

The recall applies to the model 482 Series Steelcase Amia desk chair, sold between March and June 2011 by various Steelcase retailers for $350 to $700 each. The chairs came in a variety of fabric or leather covering options. Information about the model of each chair and its manufacturing dates appears on a sticker on the underside of each chair. Only this particular series of chairs is affected by the recall.

Consumers who are using these chairs should stop using them immediately and contact Steelcase, which will provide a repair kit free of charge. Consumers can call Steelcase at (800) 391-7194 or email retrofit@steelcase.com to request a repair kit.
