South Shore Furniture recalls 322500 Libra chests

Drawers recalled due to ‘serious tip-over and entrapment hazards,’ 1 death reported

The Libra style 3-drawer chests are manufactured by South Shore Furniture and were sold from October 2009-July 2018 for about $60.

In one of the top-over accidents, a child was bruised and scratched on his legs.

There were 6,930 units sold in Canada, and another 315,600 sold in the USA and Mexico, between 2009 and 2018. The 3-drawer chests came in nine colors and each drawer has a metal handle. Some of the chests were part of a three-piece set.

And the notice says South Shore knows this because it's received two reports of tip-overs involving children.
