Recall issued after chest of drawers tips over, kills 2-year-old

The dressers were sold online through Walmart, Amazon, Target and other retailers between October 2009 and July 2018. In the other incident, a child has bruises and scratches on his leg. Another 6,900 dressers were sold in Canada.

Some of the units were sold as part of a three-piece bedroom set that also include a bed and a nightstand.

The recall involves the Libra style three-drawer chest of drawers sold in nine colors.

Customers should stop using any recalled chest that is not properly anchored to a wall and place it in an area that children can not access.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is warning that the recalled chests are unstable if they're not properly anchored to the wall and could result in death or injuries to children. The model number is printed on a label on the back of the chest.

A Quebec furniture manufacturer is recalling a three-drawer dresser linked to a child's death in the United States.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced on Thursday that Shore Furniture has recalled its Libra three-drawer chest of drawers due to serious tip-over and entrapment hazards.

Health Canada said those who own one of these dressers should stop using it and contact the company at 1-855-215-4932 to receive a free fix kit they can use to secure the chest. By contacting the company, consumers can get a free pickup and refund, receive new drawer slides, or get free in-home installation of an anchor to keep it from tipping over.

Consumers can also visit www.ShouthShoreFurniture.com and click on the Recall Information link for more details. In 2015, Ikea launched a campaign in the U.S. and Canada to encourage owners of the Malm chests of drawers to anchor them to the wall.
