My guess is a forklift operator got overzealous and rammed right into the side of the pallet before picking it up. I've seen it happen dozens of times.
It's almost touching... maybe 1/4" clearance when the blade is rotated by hand. It just needs to be fixed before letting those spindles get wobbley
I considered tapping it out myself, but GXi's pre-arrival letter said this:
