Furniture superstore Ikea has issued an urgent recall on one of their popular office staples.

On Tuesday, Product Safety Australia issued a recall of the Odger swivel chair.

The desk chair, in colour anthracite, is made of a wood plastic composite seat with aluminium tubing legs and rubber feet.

The chair is being recalled due to complications with the star base leg, which is at risk of breaking and causing harm to users.

“If the leg breaks and the chair collapses while a person is sitting on it, there is a risk of injury to the user,” Product Safety Australia wrote.

The recalled item has date stamps before and including 2221, with 22 representing the year and 21 representing the week it was produced.

The date stamp and product name can be found underneath the seat, in the material of the chair.

The chair should be returned to any Ikea store in Australia for a full refund.

Proof of purchase is not required to obtain a refund.
