Sauder Woodworking Recalls Chest of Drawers Due to Serious Tip-Over Hazard; Sold Exclusively at Walmart.com
Name of product: Four-drawer chests
Hazard: The recalled chests are unstable unless they are properly anchored to the wall, posing a serious tip-over and entrapment hazard that could result in death or serious injuries to children. Due to a manufacturing problem, these chests do not comply with the voluntary safety standard (ASTM F2057-14).
Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using any recalled chests that are not properly anchored to the wall and place them in an area that children cannot access. Sauder Woodworking is contacting all known purchasers directly and sending free repair kits and wall anchoring kits. If a consumer is unable or unwilling to attach the repair kit, they should contact Sauder Woodworking for a full refund. Consumers who request a refund will be provided instructions by Sauder on how to properly dispose of the chests.
CPSC strongly recommends that all dressers be anchored to the wall. For more information on our Anchor It campaign, please visit http://www.anchorit.gov/
