South Shore Furniture is recalling over 300,000 chest dressers after a 2-year-old was killed and another child was injured by units that tipped over and fell on them.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said that the chests are unstable if they are not secured to a wall and could result in death or injuries to children.
The recall includes 9 colors of “Libra style 3-drawer chests of drawers” from South Shore sold online by Walmart, Amazon, Target and other retailers from October 2009 to July 2018.
The recalled model numbers, found on a label on the back of the chest, are 3146033, 3070033, 3159033, 3050033, 3113033, 10430, 10433, 10680, 10682. The model numbers may also have A, B, C, D or E at the end. Some recalled chests were sold as part of a set that included a bed and nightstand, with model numbers 3070223, 3159223, 3050223.
South Shore said it will give a full refund and pick up the chests for free. Consumers can also send in the chest with a pre-paid shipping label.
Also the company is giving out free tip-over restraint kits and offering free in-home installation of the kit.
