Office Depot is recalling about 300,000 office chairs because the seat plate weld can crack or break.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Office Depot has received eight reports of the seat plate weld cracking or breaking.

No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves Crawley II executive chairs. The black, high-back, adjustable chairs have a black base with five wheels.

The chairs were sold at Office Depot and OfficeMax retail stores nationwide and online from October 2012 through September 2015 for about $140.

The affected chairs have Office Depot SKU number 493822 or OfficeMax item number 23324118 and “US REG. No. PA 25917(CN)” printed on a label located on the underside of the seat cushion.

If you have this product, it’s recommended that you immediately stop using the recalled chair and contact Office Depot to receive a free replacement seat plate.
