The chests are unstable if they are not anchored to the wall

Samson International is recalling about 5,400 Universal Broadmoore Cayden Gentleman’s 9-drawer chests.

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

The firm has received one report of a tip-over incident involving a 10-year-old child.

This recall involves Samson International’s Universal Broadmoore Cayden Gentleman’s 9-drawer chests, model/item number M71C3180. The chests are brown and measure about 49 inches tall, 55 inches wide, and 18 inches deep. A label located on the back of each unit contains “Samson International,” the model/item number, the month and year of manufacture, and the Costco customer item number 1335751. The chests are made of wood.

The date codes are printed in MMDDYYYY (month/day/year) format, and recalled units have manufacturing date codes between September 2019, and November 2019.

The dresser chests, manufactured in China, were sold exclusively at Costco Wholesale Warehouses nationwide and online at from December 2019, through April 2020, for about $700.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using recalled chests if they are not properly anchored to the wall, place them in an area that children cannot access, and contact Samson for a full refund or a free tip-over restraint kit.

Samson will provide prepaid shipping labels so that consumers can remove the chest’s drawer slides and return them to Samson for a full refund. Samson will also provide free in-home installation of the tip-over restraint kit upon request.

Consumers may also return the item to any Costco Warehouse for a full refund.
