Prepac Manufacturing is recalling about 21,000 four-drawer chests.
The recalled 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 death or injuries to children.
No incidents or injuries have been reported.
This recall includes Prepac four-drawer chests with plastic drawer glides. The recalled chests were sold in three finishes; black, oak, and white. The following model numbers are included in the recall and are printed on the instruction manual:
The chests were sold online at Overstock.com, Target.com, Amazon.com, and other online retailers from April 2005 through September 2018 for about $75.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled chests if not properly anchored to the wall and place them in an area that children can’t access, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advise. Consumers can contact Prepac to receive a free tip-over restraint kit, or they can request a one-time, free in-home installation of the wall anchor strap. The in-home remedy may be delayed due to covid-19 restrictions.
