WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Name of Product: Office Depot(r) Brand Biella Leather Desk Chairs

Units: 307,000 in the U.S. and 12,000 in Canada

Importer: Swinton Avenue Trading, of Boca Raton, Fla.

Manufacturer: Wonderful Year Inc., of China

Hazard: The weld connecting the seat plate to the gas lift can fail, causing the chair to separate from the base. This poses a fall hazard to consumers.

Incidents/Injuries: Office Depot has received 11 reports of the chairs breaking and consumers falling while seated, resulting in reports of injuries, including minor contusions and abrasions.

Description: This recall involves Office Depot(r) brand leather desk chairs. The mid-back height leather chairs were sold in black and have SKU number 130548. "REG. No. PA-25498 (CN)" and "Made in China" are printed on a label located on the underside of the seat.

Sold exclusively at: Office Depot retail stores nationwide and online at www.OfficeDepot.com from January 2002 through December 2008 for about $55.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the chairs and contact Office Depot's recall hotline to receive a $55 store card that may be used for a replacement chair or other store merchandise.

Consumer Contact: For additional information, contact Office Depot's recall hotline toll-free at (866) 403-3763 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's website at www.officedepot.com

Note: Health Canada's press release is available at http://cpsr-rspc.hc-sc.gc.ca/PR-RP/recall-retrait-eng.jsp?re_id=1551
