A popular OfficeMax chair was voluntarily recalled today because it can break and injure people sitting in it.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission and OfficeMax recalled the OfficeMax Task Chair following 35 reports of the chair backs or posts breaking. This includes 15 reports lacerations, muscle strains, contusions and concussions.
OfficeMax estimated about 216,000 chairs were sold nationally and on their Web site. They were sold from Sept. 2003 through July 2008 for between $40 and $65.
Customers who purchased the chair are advised to return it for a full refund or gift card.
