Home Depot has recalled whitewash chests over concerns the four-drawer piece of furniture creates tipping and entrapment hazards, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a news release Wednesday.
According to the CPSC, the chest, named Home Decorators Collection Print Block 4-Drawer Whitewash Chest, is unstable unless it is anchored to a wall. Failure to anchor the chest poses “serious tip-over and entrapment hazards” that could lead to serious injury or death.
The chest also does not comply with the performance requirements of the U.S. voluntary industry standard (ASTM 2057=17), the CPSC said in its release.
The chest is made from mango wood with a distressed finish, and was sold between May 2015 and December 2019, the CPSC said. The chest, which was manufactured in India, is about 44 inches tall and weighs about 96 pounds. A white label on the back of each chest lists the manufacturer “Country Art & Craft LLP” and date of production in black text, the CPSC said in its release.
