Virco upholstered stack chairs

Description: CONTACT: August 21, 1990 (301) 504-7908 Release # 90-146 Certain Virco Stack Chairs May Collapse WASHINGTON, DC -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Virco Mfg. Corporation of Los Angeles, CA, today voluntarily announced a recall of its 890 Series upholstered stack chairs manufactured between June 29, 1989 and May 3, 1990. These chairs are being recalled because of possible structural flaws in the frames that may cause the legs to collapse. Virco informed the CPSC that a design change in June 1989 resulted in the distribution of approximately 535,000 chairs that may bend excessively during use causing the user to fall to the floor. The firm is aware of 30 incidents of chair leg failure. At least two incidents resulted in personal injuries, one of which was a knee injury. Chairs involved in the recall have square tubular metal frames with upholstered seats and backs. They are used in homes, restaurants, business offices, churches and other institutions. Virco will replace all defective chair frames with new, redesigned frames from the factory. To determine whether a particular frame is subject to recall, consumers and institutions should contact either the company from which it was purchased, or call the Virco Mfg. Corp. at 1-800-44VIRCO. The firm will provide literature with drawings and other specific information to aid in identification [Learn More]
