PhotoVanguard Furniture Company of Conover, N.C., is recalling about 170 Bow Front chests of drawers.

The chests are unstable if 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 have been reported.

This recall involves Bow Front chests of drawers from the Vanguard Furniture Compendium Collection. The eight drawer beech-wood chests have primavera veneers and are finished in a variety of custom colors.

The chests weigh 250 pounds and measure 36 inches high by 20 inches deep by 75 inches wide. Tip restraint kits were included with each chest of drawers.

The chests, manufactured in Indonesia and the U.S., were sold at furniture stores nationwide from August 2015, to February 2017, for between $4,200 and $4,400.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using any recalled chests that are not properly anchored to the wall and place them into an area that children cannot access.
