More than 80,000 office chairs sold at stores nationwide, including TJ Maxx, have been recalled as the back of the chair can break or detach from the seat base when a consumer is seated, posing a fail hazard.
The firm has received 12 reports in which the back of the chair broke or detached from the seat base when a consumer was seated in a chair at a store, including 10 reports of injuries, including contusions, strains, numbness, bruising and one reported concussion.
This recall involves office chairs with a circle cushioned seat that attaches to an adjustable metal stand and five wheels. The back of the chair is a cushioned horizontal oval. The recalled office chairs were sold in white, black, gray, floral, pink, orange, navy, light blue, brown, mint and cream colors. The cushion is covered in either velvet, linen, boucle or faux leather. One of the following style numbers is printed on a hang tag attached to the product: GT646, GT646A, GT646AA, GT646AB, GT646AABO. “ANJI GUOTAI Furniture Co. Ltd.” and “Made in China” are printed on a label underneath the seat.
The chairs were sold at Marshalls, T.J. Maxx, HomeGoods and Homesense stores nationwide from June 2019 through December 2022 for between $60 and $70.
