Four-drawer chests have been recalled due to tipping and entrapment hazards.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Hodedah HI4DR 4-drawer chests are unstable if they are not anchored to the wall, posing tip-over and entrapment hazards that may result in death or serious injuries to children. "The chests do not comply with the performance requirements of the U.S. voluntary industry standard (ASTM 2057-19)," the commission said.

They were sold in beech, mahogany, chocolate, cherry, white, and black colors. The chests measure about 40 inches tall, 27.5 inches wide, and 15.5 inches deep and weigh about 84 pounds.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said people should immediately stop using any recalled chest that is not properly anchored to the wall and place it in an area that children cannot access. Hodedah will provide free anti-tip anchoring kits or packaging and pre-paid shipping labels so that consumers can remove the chest’s drawer slides and return them to the firm for a full refund and discard the rest of the dresser.
