TAMPA, Fla. — Hodedah is recalling thousands of its HI4DR 4-drawer chests because they pose a tip-over and entrapment hazard for children.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports the chests do not comply with the performance requirements of the U.S. voluntary industry standard.
If the chests are not anchored to a wall, they could tip-over and entrap a children, resulting in serious injuries or death.
The recall involves the Hodedah HI4DR 4-drawer chest sold in beech, mahogany, chocolate, cherry, white, and black colors.
The chests are about 40 inches tall, 27.5 inches wide, and 15.5 inches deep and weigh about 84 pounds.
They were sold from July 2017 through April 2020 for between $90 and $200 dollars. Consumers could purchase the chests online from 123stores.com, Amazon.com, Cymax.com, Goedeckers.com, Hayneedle.com, HomeDepot.com, Homesquare.com, Houzz.com, Overstock.com, Unbeatablesale.com, Walmart.com and Wayfair.com.
Hodedah asks all consumers to immediately stop using any recalled chest that is not already properly anchored to the wall and place it in an area children cannot access.
The company will provide free anti-tip anchoring kits or packaging and pre-paid shipping labels so consumers can remove the chest’s drawer slides and return them to the firm for a full refund and discard the rest of the dresser.
