CPSC
Wal-Mart Stores Inc., of Bentonville, Ark. is recalling about 762,000 Mainstays Associate Office Chairs because the 'legs and backs of these chairs can break, and the chairs can easily tip over, posing a fall hazard to consumers.'

According to the CPSC recall alert, 'the recall involves the Mainstays Associate office chair with a 5-star nylon base with dual wheel casters and pneumatic seat height adjustment. The chair has a fabric cushioned seat and back that is black/grey in color. The armrests are shaped in half-circle loops. Under the seat is a UPC Code Label #9501401610 with printed Model #VCR1022.'

Consumers should stop using these chairs, especially since there have been nine reports of these chairs breaking already, and seven reports of injuries, and return them to Wal-Mart for a refund.
