South Shore Industries of Canada is recalling 3,755 5-drawer chests of drawers sold in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
The recalled chests are unstable if they are not anchored to the wall, posing a serious tip-over and entrapment hazard 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 are reported.
This recall involves Summer Breeze style 5-drawer chest of drawers sold in cherry wood. Model number 3746035 is printed on a label affixed to the back of the chest and on the assembly guide.
The chests measure 44-inches high by 31-inches wide and 16-inches deep and weigh 88 pounds.
The chests, manufactured in Canada, were sold at Amazon.com, Walmart.com, Wayfair.com and other online retailers from April 2014, 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. Contact South Shore for a choice between two options: full refund with free pick up of the chest, or a free tip-over restraint kit with a one-time in-home installation of the kit.
South Shore is contacting consumers who purchased the recalled chests directly.
