Prepac Manufacturing Ltd., of Canada recalled about 21,000 Prepac 4-drawer chests because they pose a safety hazard.
“The recalled chests are unstable and can tip over if not anchored to the wall, posing serious tip-over and entrapment hazards that can result in death or injuries to children,” according to the recall notice.
The recall includes Prepac 4-drawer chests with plastic drawer glides. The recalled chests were sold in three finishes: black, oak and white.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled chests if not properly anchored to the wall and contact Prepac for a free tip-over restraint kit.
Consumers can also request a one-time, free in-home installation of the wall anchor strap.
The recalled chests were sold online at Overstock.com, Target.com, Amazon.com and other online retailers from April 2005 through September 2018 for about $75.
