Bel Furniture Recalls Unstable Barrington 5-Drawer Chests Due to Potential Safety Risk

Bel Furniture of Houston, Texas, recalled about 90 Barrington 5-drawer chests due to potential safety risk.

The chests are unstable if they are not anchored to the wall, posing tip-over and entrapment hazards that can result in death or serious injuries to children.

The firm has received one report of the chest tipping over and injuring a child.

The chests were manufactured in Malaysia and were sold at Bel Furniture stores throughout Texas and online.

The company urges consumers to immediately stop using the chests and contact Bel Furniture for a full refund with free pick-up of the dresser.

Consumers can also return the drawer slides for free and dispose of the dresser, or for a free installation of tip-over restraints by Bel Furniture.

Bel Furniture is contacting all purchasers directly.
