Leggett & Platt recalls office chairs due to fall hazard

Brisbane High BackLeggett & Platt Office Components is recalling about 47,900 office chairs in the United Stated and about 1,000 in Canada.

The seat slider bolts and push nuts can disconnect and fall out, which could cause the seat to detach from the chair, posing a fall hazard to consumers.

No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves office chairs with a Leggett & Platt Office Components LP01 synchro slider mechanism. The slider mechanism allows the user to adjust the seat depth. The sliders were sold on five brands of office chairs: Hon, Hugg, JSI, Sitmatic, and Via Seating.
