The affected chairs have the SKU number 105479 and the registration numbers PA 27248 (CN), PA 25498 (CN), PA 25276 (HK) or CA 35181 (RC) that can be found next to the words "Made in China"which is printed on a label located on the underside of the seats.

Office Depot has received about 153 reports of the seat plate weld cracking or breaking, including 25 reports of contusions, abrasions and reports of injuries to the head, neck and a fractured back and hip which required medical attention.

The chairs were sold exclusively at Office Depot retail stores and online from 2003 through 2012 for about $40.
