Office Depot recalls Gibson Leather Task Chairs
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that Office Depot is recalling the Office Depot Gibson Leather Task Chair due to a fall hazard. The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall in its Recall Notice 14-188, dated May 22, 2014.
This recall involves Office Depot® Gibson Leather Task Chairs. The black, armless, adjustable chairs have a black base with five wheels. The affected chairs have the SKU number 105479 and the registration numbers PA 27248 (CN), PA 25498 (CN), PA 25276 (HK) or CA 35181 (RC) that can be found next to the words “Made in China” which is printed on a label located on the underside of the seats.
