Furniture Maker Recalls Toy Chests
WASHINGTON (AP) _ An Arizona furniture maker is recalling about 400 toy chests because of faulty lids that could injure children, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.
No injuries have been reported, by the commission said an investigator for the Georgia Office of Consumer Affairs discovered that the lids could fall onto a child’s head or neck.
The oak toy chests are made by Thornwood Furniture Manufacturing of Phoenix and have model number 841LQ or 1814LQ on the rear panel. They are 35 inches long, 19 inches high and 19 inches deep and have one adjustable lid support. The Thornwood Furniture name and address are on the product sticker on the rear panel of the chest.
Furniture stores nationwide, including Rooms To Go, Bedroom Superstores and MN Goldstein, sold the toy chests from January 1999 through November 1999 for about $170.
The product safety commission said consumers should immediately stop children from using the toy chest and contact the store where it was purchased for a replacement.
