US/Washington: Vanguard Furniture recalls an estimated 170 Bow Front Chests of Drawers due to suspected of serious risk tip-over and consequential entrapment, injury and death hazards. CPSC:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves certain Bow Front Chests of Drawers from the Vanguard Furniture Compendium Collection.
The recalled eight (8) drawer beech-wood Chests have primavera veneers and are finished in a variety of custom colors. The Chests weigh 250 pounds and measure 36 inches high by 20 inches deep by 75 inches wide. Tip restraint kits were included with each Chest of Drawers.
Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. One (1) additional image of the recalled Chest of Drawers are pictured on the Web site above.
==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.
According to the CPSC, the recalled Chests are unstable if they are not anchored to the wall, posing a serious tip-over and entrapment hazard that can result in injuries or death to children. The Chests, therefore, do not comply with the performance requirements of the US voluntary industry standard (ASTM F2057-14).
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Bow Front Chests of Drawers, please do not use them unless they are properly and securely anchored to the wall. If this is not possible, place the Chests into an area that children cannot access them and contact Vanguard Furniture for a free, in-home installation of a repair to prevent the risk of a tip-over. Vanguard Furniture is also contacting registered purchasers directly.
