Bolton Furniture Recalls Dressers Due to Serious Tip-Over and Entrapment Hazards
The dressers pose a serious tip-over and entrapment hazard to young children
Bolton Furniture has announced a recall of approximately 1,000 Two Over Two4-drawer dressers. The recalled dressers are unstable if they are not anchored to the wall, posing a serious tip-over and entrapment hazard to young children that could result in severe injuries or death.
The recalled dressers do not comply with the performance requirements of the U.S. voluntary industry standard (ASTM F2057-14).
Dresser models included in the recall are Cambridge 8614, Emma 8314, Essex 6614, Wakefield 8014, and Woodridge 8414. The affected dressers were sold in cherry, chestnut, espresso, honey, ivory, natural, and white. Model names and numbers can be found on the QC/production sticker located on back of the dresser.
So far, there have been no injuries or incidents reported in connection with this recall.
Consumers should immediately stop using any recalled dresser that is not properly anchored to the wall and place it into an area that children cannot access. Consumers should contact Bolton Furniture for a free retrofit kit. Consumers can install the retrofit kit or the tip-restraint strap sold with the dressers themselves, or contact Bolton who will provide a one-time, free in-home installation.
The recalled dressers were sold at Full Line Furniture and children's specialty stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, Overstock.com, Target.com, ToysRUs.com, Wayfair.com, Zulilly.com, and other online retailers from February 2011 to October 2016 for about $700 each.
