According to The Home Depot, the backs of these chairs can detach from the base, which could cause the seated person to fall. The Atlanta, Ga.-based company said this issue only affects chairs without screw holes and wood screws on the bottom of the seat.
The recall was announced Feb. 25. Sets included in the recall have model numbers C-08, C-08-1, C-08-2 and C-08-3.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, The Home Depot has received 17 reports of chair backs becoming detached from their bases. No injuries have been reported. The chairs, sold in sets of two for around $150, were manufactured in China. They were sold online via The Home Depot’s website between September 2019 and January 2021.
If your set has an affected model number, you’ll want to inspect the chairs to determine whether they fall under the recall. Flip the chairs over and look for screw holes or wood screws on the bottom of the seat. Only chairs without these screw holes and screws are affected by the recall. The Home Depot is contacting buyers directly to aid the inspection process.
