Chairs sold at TJMaxx, HomeGoods and Marshalls recalled after reported injuries
TJX Companies has recalled nearly 82,000 office chairs that were sold at its company owned stores nationwide because they can break and cause injuries, according to safety regulators.
The back of the office chairs, which were sold at Marshalls, T.J. Maxx, HomeGoods or Homesense stores, can "break or detach from the seat base when a consumer is seated in the chair, posing a fall hazard," according to a notice posted by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
The recall was initiated following 12 reports that the back of the chair broke or detached when someone was testing the chair at a store.
