Wooden dressers sold by Walmart recalled

(WFLA) – Sauder Woodworking issued a recall for four-drawer wooden chests due to a tip-over hazard.

This recall involves four-drawer wooden chests sold under the Storybook brand (model 416407). The white laminated chests have a single white wood pull on each drawer. The chests are unstable until they are anchored to the wall, posing a serious tip-over risk.

The chests were manufactured between April 2016 and June 2016. They were sold exclusively at Walmart.com from April 2016 to June 2016 for about $100.

A label with the date code is located on the back of the unit. The chests measure 42.13 inches high by 29.25 inches wide and 16.25 inches deep.

Date code
04/2016

There were no reported injuries or incidents in connection with this product.

Consumers should immediately stop using any recalled chests that are not properly anchored to the wall and place them in an area that children can’t have access to them. The company is contacting all known purchasers directly and sending free repair kits and wall anchoring kits.

If you can’t attach the repair kit, you can contact Sauder Woodworking for a full refund. Consumers who request a refund will be provided instructions by Sauder on how to properly dispose of the chests.

CPSC strongly recommends that all dressers be anchored to the wall. For more information on the Anchor It campaign, please visit http://www.anchorit.gov/
