A day after Walmart was hit with a vegetable recall, they’re now facing a massive recall with their Mainstays home brand.

According to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission, the recall involves 1.6 million of Mainstays’ four-drawer chests, sold in a variety of colors at Walmart and other stores that carry Mainstays products. The concern is that the chest can tip over too easily onto to small children.

Ameriwood, the manufacturer of Mainstays products, has a solution, though. They’re advising customers to keep children away from the chests until the furniture can be properly anchored to walls to keep it from tipping over.

How can customers do the anchoring? With a free repair kit provided by Ameriwood, which includes both an anchoring device and feet for the drawer set to sit on top of. Contact Ameriwood for information on how to get the kit.
