Canyon Furniture Dressers Sold at Rooms To Go Are Recalled Due to Tip-Over Risk
The children's chests of drawers do not comply with the industry's voluntary stability standard and could lead to injuries and death
Canyon Furniture Company recalled about 1,200 Creekside Children’s Chests of Drawers last week because they pose a serious tip-over risk that could lead to death or injuries in children, according to an announcement from the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the government agency that oversees thousands of home goods.
The dressers, available exclusively at Rooms To Go, do not comply with the voluntary performance standard set by the industry, which states that a dresser should stay upright when a 50-pound weight is hung on a single open drawer while the others are closed. This standard does not account for much of what happens in the real world, such as when multiple drawers are opened at once or when a child pulls or steps on a drawer.
Products recalled: About 1,200 Creekside Kids Five-Drawer Chests, sold in charcoal (SKU number 34595035) and chestnut (SKU number 34495045). The products measure about 43.5 inches tall, 31.5 inches wide and 18 inches deep. A label on the back of the dressers says “Canyon Furniture Co,” along with an SKU number and the production date. The recalled chests were manufactured between April 2020 and March 2021.
Sold at: Rooms To Go from April 2020 through March 2021 for about $430.
The problem: The chests, which don’t comply with the industry’s voluntary stability standard, pose a serious tip-over and entrapment risk that can result in death or injuries to children.
The fix: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled cabinets and keep children away from them. Then contact Rooms To Go for a free repair, a replacement, or a store credit for the full price of the product. The company will also pick up the chest free of charge and contact all known customers who purchased the recalled product.
How to contact the manufacturer: Call Rooms To Go at 855-688-0919, email the company at firstname.lastname@example.org, or go to the recall page on the company’s website.
