Grand Rapids Chair Company has announced a recall for products due to various safety issues.

The company is recalling its Sadie model chair and barstool. The back leg of the chairs can bend and the seat tabs or screws on the seat can loosen. When loose, pinch points between the seat and steel frame are created, posing a risk of injury. About 2,300 chairs and barstools are included in the recall.

The firm has received three reports of finger injuries including a finger laceration, bruise, and fracture.

The recalled chairs bear model number 837 and have a seat height of 18.5 inches and overall width of 22.5 inches. The barstools (model number 837S) are the same width as the chairs, but have a seat height of 30 inches. The model number is printed on the label located on the underside of the chair. Both products have a steel frame of various colors and a wood seat base and seatback. The barstool also features a footrest.

The chairs and barstools were sold through Grand Rapids Chair sales representatives and distributors, both directly to end users and in the company's commercial showrooms in Byron Center, MI and Chicago, IL. from June 2014 through January 2016 for between $150 and $200.

Consumers should immediately stop using these recalled chairs and barstools and contact Grand Rapids Chair Company to schedule a free repair.
