Bolton Furniture dressers recalled due to entrapment hazard

Models included in recall: Cambridge 8614, Emma 8314, Essex 6614, Wakefield 8014


SAN ANTONIO – Bolton Furniture has recalled its dressers due to serious tip-over and entrapment hazards.

The recalled dressers are unstable if they are not anchored to the wall, posing a serious tip-over and entrapment hazard that can result in death or injuries to children. The dressers do not comply with the performance requirements of the U.S. voluntary industry standard. 

The recall involves Bolton Furniture two over two style 4-drawer dressers.

Models included in the recall are Cambridge 8614, Emma 8314, Essex 6614, Wakefield 8014 and Woodridge 8414. The dressers were sold in cherry, chestnut, espresso, honey, ivory, natural, and white. Model names and numbers can be found on the QC/production sticker located on back of the dresser.

The furniture can be found in children’s specialty stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, Overstock.com, Target.com, ToysRUs.com, Wayfair.com, Zulilly.com and other online retailers from February 2011 to October 2016 for about $700.

Consumers should immediately stop using any recalled dresser that is not properly anchored to the wall and place it into an area that children cannot access.

Consumers should contact Bolton Furniture for a free retrofit kit. Consumers can install the retrofit kit or the tip-restraint strap sold with the dressers themselves, or contact Bolton who will provide a one-time, free in-home installation.
