Major office chair recalled due to fall hazard

TAMPA, Fla. (WAVY) – If you have one of several types of office chairs at work or at home, you might want to check to see if it is under a recall.

More than 47,000 chairs are coming off the shelves because the manufacturer, Leggett & Platt, says the seat bolts and nuts can disconnect and fall off, causing a person to fall out of the chair.

The recall involves five brands of office chairs: Hon, Hugg, JSI, Sitmatic and VIA Seating.  The chairs were sold at Costco, OfficeMax, Office Depot, Staples and on-line between July 2015 and February 2017.

Call Leggett & Platt toll-free at 844-516-3615 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, email at or online at and click on “Product Recall” at the top of the page for more information. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
