Chair Recalled Due to Risk of Injury


By Naomi Millán Ceilings, Furniture & Walls

About 2,300 Grand Rapids Chair Company Sadie chairs and barstools have been recalled by the company because the back legs of the chairs can bend and the seat can loosen, creating potentially dangerous pinch points. The company has received three injury reports, including a finger laceration, bruise and fracture, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recall number 16-753.

The affected chair model is 837, with a seat height of 18.5 inches. The affected barstool is model 837s, with a seat height of 30 inches. Both have a steel frame sold in various colors. Recalled units were sold from June 2014 to January 2016.

Facility managers impacted by this recall are directed to contact the company to schedule free repairs. Grand Rapids Chair Company can be reached at (866) 453-4748, quality@grandrapidschair.com, or http://grandrapidschair.com/
