Millions of Furniture Tip-Over Kits Recalled for Injury Hazard

Millions of Furniture Tip-Over Kits Recalled for Injury Hazard

January 12, 2024 — Alliance4Safety has recalled millions of anti-tip kits that may fail to prevent furniture from tipping over, which poses a risk of severe injury or death, especially for children.

The recall involves plastic New Age Furniture Restraint Kits that were sold by 31 furniture companies.

The problem is that a plastic zip-tie in the anti-tip kit can become brittle or break, which can allow a dresser or other piece of furniture to detach and tip over instead of remaining anchored to the wall.

This safety hazard poses “a tip-over and entrapment hazard that can result in death or serious injuries to children.” No injuries were reported, but there were 2 reports of the anti-tip kits breaking.

The list of furniture companies that used these recalled anti-tip kits after November 2019 includes:

  • American Drew
  • American Woodcrafters
  • Amini Innovation Corporation
  • Ashley Furniture Industries, LLC
  • Aspenhome
  • Austin Group Furniture, LLC
  • Avalon International Inc., LLC
  • Bassett Furniture Industries, Inc.
  • Drew and Jonathan by Hooker Furnishings
  • Emery Park
  • FD Home Corp.
  • Flexsteel Industries, Inc.
  • Furniture Values International, LLC
  • Homelegance USA, LLC
  • Hooker Furnishings
  • Kincaid Furniture
  • LC Direct Furniture
  • Legacy Classic/Modern Furniture
  • Liberty Furniture Industries, Inc.
  • Magnussen Home Furnishings, Inc.
  • New Classic Home Furnishings, Inc.
  • Parker House Furniture
  • Progressive Furniture
  • Pulaski Furniture
  • Riverside Furniture
  • Samuel Lawrence
  • Springhill Designs
  • Standard Furniture Manufacturing Co., LLC
  • Universal Furniture
  • Van Thiel & Co.
  • Vanguard Furniture Company

Consumers should immediately check if their clothing storage unit has a manufacturing date sticker or stamp of November 2019 or later.

If so, and if the tip kit is made of plastic, consumers should contact Alliance4Safety for a free replacement tip kit. Keep children away from the unit while waiting for a replacement tip kit.
