What is the problem?

The recalled chests are unstable if they are not anchored to the wall, posing a serious tip-over and entrapment hazard that can result in death or injuries to children. The chests do not comply with the performance requirements of the U.S. voluntary industry standard (ASTM F2057-14).

How can I tell if I own this product?

This recall involves Summer Breeze style 5-drawer chest of drawers sold in cherry wood. Model number 3746035 is printed on a label affixed to the back of the chest and on the assembly guide. The chests measure 44-inches high by 31-inches wide and 16-inches deep and weigh 88 pounds.

These items were sold new+ at Amazon.com, Walmart.com, Wayfair.com and other online retailers from April 2014 through December 2016 for about $160.
