Nearly one and a half million office chairs are being recalled because they can dump you on the floor.

Office Depot is recalling these “Gibson leather task chairs,” with “SKU” number “105479.”

The mounting plate weld can break, separating the seat from the base of the chair.

A number of injuries have been reported, including a fractured back and hip.

The chairs were sold in stores and online from 2003 through 2012.

Officials say people should stop using the chairs and return them to the store for credit.
