Millions of anchor kits to prevent furniture tip-overs are being recalled

Furniture restraint-kits Are Being RecalledMillions of furniture tip restraints kits made by New Age Industries that were sold with dressers, chests, and other clothing storage furniture throughout the United States are being recalled.

Because the plastic zip tie in the kits can become brittle or break, furniture that is supposed to be anchored to the wall can detach, posing a risk of death or serious injuries to children if the furniture tips over.

Furniture companies have received two reports of the New Age tip kits breaking. No injuries have been reported.

Among the 31 furniture companies participating in the recall are Ashley Furniture Industries, Aspenhome, Bassett Furniture Industries, Liberty Furniture Industries, Riverside Furniture, Kincaid Furniture, Parker House Furniture, Universal Furniture, and more. For a complete list, click here.

The New Age tip kits included a plastic zip tie, two brackets, and two screws and were sold with clothing storage units manufactured in Vietnam.

The date of manufacture should be listed on a sticker or stamped on the clothing storage unit as November 2019 or later. The kit’s packaging is white with black lettering and includes directions on how to anchor furniture, with statement on the bottom that says “Manufactured by New Age Industries.”

The kits were sold at furniture stores nationwide and online from November 2019 through January 2024.

If the clothing storage unit has a date of manufacture sticker or stamp of November 2019 or later and if the tip kit has plastic zip ties, consumers should contact Alliance4Safety for a free replacement tip kit, U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advises. The agency recommends keeping children away from the unit while waiting for a replacement tip kit. Allow four to six weeks for delivery.
