Hillsdale Furniture recalls five-drawer chests due to tip-over and entrapment hazards

Hillsdale Furniture Recalls Five-Drawer Chests Due to Tip-Over and Entrapment HazardsHillsdale Furniture is recalling about 31,000 Chadwick and Bailey five-drawer wood chests in the United States and about 740 in Canada.

The chests are unstable and can tip over if they aren’t anchored to the wall, posing serious tip-over and entrapment hazards that can result in injuries or death to children. The chests don’t comply with the performance requirements of the U.S. voluntary industry standard, ASTM F2057-17.

No incidents or injuries have been reported.

This recall includes Chadwick and Bailey five-drawer wood chests in white, mission oak, espresso, and dove gray colors. “Hillsdale Furniture” is printed on a label on the back of the chest. The chests measure 48 inches tall by 36 inches wide by 17 inches deep.

The dressers were sold at Bob’s Discount Furniture and other retailers nationwide from August 2010 through August 2019 for about $280.

Consumers should immediately stop using any recalled chest that isn’t properly anchored to the wall and place it in an area that children can’t access, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Commission advise. Contact Bob’s Discount Furniture or Hillsdale Furniture to receive a free repair or refund. Remedy options include a free self-install repair kit, free in-home installation of repair kit, or free pick-up of the chest.
