PhotoHomestar North America of Statesville, N.C., is recalling about 1,470 Stockholm three-drawer TV chests.

The chests are unstable if not anchored to the wall, posing serious tip-over and entrapment hazards that can result in death or injuries to children. They do not comply with the performance requirements of the U.S. voluntary industry standard (ASTM F2057-14).

No incidents or injuries are reported.

This recall involves Stockholm three-drawer TV chests sold in Java Brown, Sonoma, Sonoma/Java Brown and Java Brown/Sonoma. The chests have a top shelf and three drawers, and measure 40 1/8 inches high by 30 ½ inches wide by 15 3/8 inches deep.

Model number 249-09-2740, 249-09-0041, 249-09-2739, or 249-09-3429 is located on the back panel of the units.

The chests, manufactured in the U.S., were sold exclusively at Target.com from May 2015, through August 2016, for about $160.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using any recalled chest that is not properly anchored to the wall and place it into an area that children cannot access.

Contact Homestar for a choice between two remedy options: a full refund including return shipping charges or a free tip-over restraint kit with virtual how-to instructions.

Consumers who purchased the recalled chests are being contacted directly.

Consumers may contact Homestar toll-free at 855-837-2569 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. (ET) Monday through Friday or by visiting visit the firm’s website at www.homestarna.com and clicking on the Recall Alert link for more information.
