E&E recalls made-in-Vietnam dressers due to tipover hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced that about 1,800 INK+IVY Renu three-drawer dressers imported by E & E Co. Ltd., dba JLA Home, of Fremont, California, are being recalled.

The recalled dressers are reported to be unstable if they are not anchored to the wall, posing serious tipover and entrapment hazards 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 (ASTM 2057-17).

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled dressers unless properly anchored to the wall and place them in an area that children cannot access. Contact E&E for a full refund with free dresser pick-up or a free tip-over restraint kit and a one-time free in-home installation of the kit. Consumers can also choose to receive a pre-paid packaging label to ship their recalled dresser back to E&E for a full refund check or a $400 Designerliving.com store credit.

Consumers can contact E&E toll-free at 844-701-5979 from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or online at http://www.ee1994.com and click on "Recall" for more information.

This recall involves the INK+IVY Renu dressers made from multi-colored pine wood. The dressers have three drawers and metal legs. Each is about 36 inches tall and weighs about 73 pounds. The INK+IVY brand name can be found on a hanging tag attached to a dresser drawer. Stickers on the back of each recalled dresser display "E&E Co., Ltd" the date of manufacture, PO numbers and the words "Made In Vietnam."

No incidents or injuries have been reported.

The dressers were sold online on bedbathandbeyond.com, jcpenney.com, kohls.com, macys.com, olliix.com, overstock.com and wayfair.com from January 2017 through September 2019 for about $350.
