Grand Rapids, MI—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Health Canada and Steelcase Inc. have voluntarily recalled about 165,000 Cachet swivel chairs. The CPSC announced the recall on January 25, 2011.

The recall initiated after discovering that the front seat support part of the chair can crack and fail, which poses a fall hazard.

The CPSC reported, “This recall involves all Steelcase Cachet swivel chairs with model number 487 manufactured between May 2002 and October 15, 2009. The chairs have a plastic slotted seat and back design and some were sold with back and seat cushions.
