Square Grove has issued a recall for a product designed to make your office more comfortable.

The company is recalling its Sit-Stand Desk Converters, model UPL147. The pneumatic lifting mechanism can pinch or break fingers during assembly or use, posing a risk of serious injury. About 750 units are included in the recall.

Square Grove has received reports of two incidents that resulted in a broken finger and a pinched finger with bruising.

The recalled model was sold in freestand and clamp versions, both in black. The freestand version sits on a desk that raises and lowers a computer monitor and keyboard by 17 inches. The clamp version functions in the same way, but clamps to the back of the desk. The words UPLIFT DESK are printed on the product.

The converters could be purchased online from January 2016 through March 2016 for about $220.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled converters and contact the company for a free repair kit.
