Sauder Woodworking recalls chest of drawers

(United States Consumer Product Safety Commission)

(WTNH) — Sauder Woodworking is recalling a chest of drawers due to serious tip-over hazards.

It was noted that these chests were manufactured between April 2016 and June 2016.

The recall has been put out because the chests have been reported to be unstable. The only way these chests can be properly stable is if they are anchored to a wall.

It is recommended that consumers immediately stop using any of the recalled chests that are not properly anchored to a wall.

Sauder Woodworking is now contacting the people that have purchased these chests directly as well as sending free repair kits to anchor the chest. The company is offering a full refund if the consumer is not willing to attach the repair kit.

This danger is posing great risks and threats that can lead to death or other serious injuries, especially for small children. The recall states that these chests do not comply with the voluntary safety standard.

Consumers can contact Sauder Woodworking at 800-523-3987 for more information regarding the recall.
