According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the recall covers about 310,000 Libra style chests sold in the U.S. and 6,900 in Canada. The chests are prone to tip over, posing a potentially fatal entrapment hazard to children.
The recall chests were sold through several major online retailers including Walmart.com, Amazon.com, and Target.com from October 2009 through July 2018 for about $60.
Customers are urged to stop using any recalled chests that is not properly anchored to a wall and move it to an area where a child cannot access the furniture. Customers can contact South Shore to receive a full refund and schedule a free pick-up of the chests.
