PhotoHome Meridian International of High Point, N.C., is recalling about 640 Mid-Century three-drawer chests.

The recalled chests are unstable if they are not anchored to the wall, posing serious tip-over and entrapment hazards that can result in death or injuries to children.

No incidents or injuries are reported.

This recall involves Mid-Century three-drawer accent chests in a brown finish (model DS-D146-002) or white finish (model DS-D146-005). The model number can be found on a label on the back of the recalled chests.

The chests have three drawers with six copper-colored drawer pulls, measure 32-inches high, 32-inches wide, 16-inches deep, and weigh about 75 pounds.

The chests, manufactured in Vietnam, were sold at Nebraska Furniture Mart stores in Nebraska, Kansas and Texas, and online at Wayfair.com, Amazon.com, BedBathandBeyond.com, and other online retailers from March 2017, through June 2019, for about $250.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using any recalled chest that is not properly anchored to the wall and place it in an area that children cannot access. Contact Home Meridian to receive a free tip-over restraint kit mailed to the home, a one-time free in-home installation of the tip-over restraint kit, or a prepaid shipping label to mail in the drawer slides for a full refund.

Consumers may contact Home Meridian at (800) 819-4796 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (ET) Monday through Friday, or online at www.homemeridian.com and click on “Recall Information” at the top of the page for more information.
