The plastic zip tie used with the kits can become brittle or break

New Age Industries of Vietnam and 31 furniture companies are recalling millions of New Age Industries furniture tip kits or tip restraints.

The plastic zip tie used with the recalled furniture tip kits can become brittle or break, which can allow a clothing storage unit that is anchored to the wall to detach, posing a tip-over and entrapment hazard that can result in death or serious injuries to children.

Furniture companies have received two reports of the New Age tip kits breaking. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves plastic New Age furniture tip restraint kits that were sold and distributed by various furniture companies with clothing storage units.

The kits included a plastic zip-tie, two brackets, and two screws and were sold with clothing storage units.

The date of manufacture should be listed on a sticker or stamped on the clothing storage unit as November 2019 or later.

The packaging of the recalled tip kits is white with black lettering and includes directions on how to anchor furniture. The bottom of the packaging states “Manufactured by New Age Industries.”
