This recall involves Edsal 5-Tier Muscle Rack Heavy Duty Steel Shelving Units used to store heavy items.

The units have gray or black-colored steel frames and five plywood shelves.

The recalled units include the following model numbers:

  • CR3618
  • CR3618-BLK
  • CR4824
  • CR4824-BLK.

The shelving units were manufactured in the U.S. and were sold online at Amazon.com, Staples.com, Walmart.com.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled shelving units and contact Edsal Manufacturing to be able to receive a full refund.
