Ameriwood Recalls 1.6 Million Chests Due to Tip-Over Hazard

The consumer product safety commission said the piece of furniture is unstable if it is not anchored to the wall and can cause injuries and even death to children.

The "Mainstays chests of drawers" were made by Ameriwood Home, a Tiffin, Ohio-based company, and sold at Walmart for about $60. The chests measure 40 5/16 inches high, by 27 11/16 inches wide, by 14 11/16 inches deep.

One injury was reported after a chest of Mainstays drawers tipped over onto a four-year-old.

Canada central bank ups key lending rate to 1.0%
But based on a relatively weak jobs report for August that was released on September 1, investors don't think that will happen. The central bank hiked its rate Wednesday by one-quarter point to 1.0 per cent, its second 25-basis-point increase since July.

The follow model numbers are included in the recall: 5412012WP, 5412301WP, 5412328WP, 5412015WY, 5412301WY, 5412012PCOM, 5412015PCOM, 5412026PCOM, 5412213PCOM, 5412214PCOM, 5412301PCOM, 5412317PCOM, and 5412328PCOM.

If you have one of these dressers, stop using it and put it in an area that children can not access. In all, there were about 1,000 of the affected dressers sold in Canada.

Those with an affected dress can contact Ameriwood for a free fix kit, which will include the needed wall anchoring device. But yours very well could be.
