More than 68,000 chests sold online are being recalled by South Shore Industries because they pose serious tip-over and entrapment hazards to young children.
The recall involves Summer Breeze-style five-drawer chests of drawers sold in four colors. Each drawer has two round knobs.
The model numbers and colors included:
- Royal Cherry: 3746035 or 3746035A
- Blueberry: 3294035 or 3294035A
- Chocolate: 3219035 or 3219035A
- White: 3210035 or 3210035A
The chests were sold at amazon.com, walmart.com, wayfair.com and other online retailers from February 2005 through last December.
If the chests are not anchored to the wall, a tip-over could injure and/or entrap a child, and result in death or injuries. No incidents have been reported.
Consumers can contact South Shore for a full refund or a free tip-over restraint kit.
South Shore is also offering a free one-time in-home installation of the kit.
