Workstations recalled by Knape & Vogt due to injury hazard
May 26, 2019
Knape & Vogt is recalling about 76,000 sit-stand office workstations.
The workstation can malfunction, causing the gas cylinders to separate and forcefully discharge, posing an injury hazard.
Knape & Vogt has received two reports of the gas cylinder separating from the workstation. In one case, the cylinder discharged from the unit resulting in damage to the drywall in an office.
The black or white workstations can be used in a sitting or standing position. The workstations measure about 36 inches wide by 24 inches deep. They have two handles and two hydraulic gas pressure cylinders which enable the workstation to be raised or lowered. The affected workstations can be identified by the Lot Number label located on the inside of the right hand top surface bracket of each unit. The affected lot numbers contain the last three letters “VOL”.
The affected lot numbers include:
The workstations were sold at Knape & Vogt authorized sellers nationwide including online at eBay, Amazon.com, Staples.com, imovr.com, ergodirect.com, hafele.com, ergonomicaccessories.com, ergoexperts.com, and officeanything.com from October 2016 through February 2019. The cost was between $350 and $560.
Consumers should immediately contact Knape & Vogt to arrange for a free in-home/office repair, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advised.
