South Shore Furniture is recalling about 310,000 Libra style 3-drawer chests because of a tip-over or entrapment hazard.

The recalled chests are unstable if not anchored to the wall and serious injury or death can occur to children.

South Shore has received two reports of tip-overs involving the recalled chests of drawers. A fatality involving a 2-year-old and an unanchored, empty 3-drawer chest has been reported.

Another incident involved a child getting bruises on his leg and scratches. 

Consumers should immediately stop using any recalled chest that is not properly anchored to the wall and place it in an area that children cannot access.

Consumers should contact South Shore to select one of the following recall options:

• To receive a full refund with free pick-up of the chest customers can call 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday at 855-215-4932 or online at www.SouthShoreFurniture.com and click on “Recall Information” for more information.

• Consumers can also remove the drawer slides from one side of the Chest and receive packaging along with a prepaid shipping label from the company to mail in the drawer slides for a full refund.

• Consumers can receive a free tip-over restraint kit and can request a one-time free in-home installation of the kit.
