Bel Furniture recalled about 90 Barrington 5-Drawer Chests after a child was injured in a tip-over accident.
Bel Furniture warned that “the recalled chests are unstable if they are not anchored to the wall, posing tip-over and entrapment hazards that can result in death or serious injuries to children,” according to a recall notice posted on July 22.
Furthermore, the chests do not comply with the anti-tip-over performance requirements, as set by the voluntary industry standard ASTM F2057-14.
They were sold at Bel Furniture stores throughout Texas and online at www.belfurniture.com from October 2014 to July 2016 for about $250.
Bel Furniture is asking consumers to immediately stop using the 5-Drawer Chests and contact the company for a full refund with free pick-up of the dresser.
Consumers can also return the drawer slides for free and dispose of the dresser, or get a free installation of tip-over restraints by Bel Furniture.
