South Shore Industries of Canada is expanding its earlier recall of Summer Breeze style 5-drawer chests of drawers to about 68,300 (including the 3,500 already recalled).
The recalled 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.
The chests do not comply with the performance requirements of the U.S. voluntary industry standard (ASTM F2057-14).
No incidents or injuries have been reported.
This recall involves Summer Breeze style 5-drawer chests of drawers sold in four colors. Each drawer has two round knobs.
The model number is printed on a label on the back of the chest. The chests measure 44-inches high by 31-inches wide and 16-inches deep and weigh 88 pounds.
The following model numbers and colors are being recalled:
The chests, manufactured in Canada, were sold online at Amazon.com, Walmart.com, Wayfair.com and other online retailers from February 2005, through December 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.
