WASHINGTON - Millions of plastic tip-over restraint kits manufactured by New Age Industries are being recalled. The plastic furniture restraints can become brittle or break, allowing the furniture to detach from the wall and a possible tip-over and/or entrapment hazard to result from the weight of child climbing or playing on the furniture; serious injury or death can occur.

The voluntary recall is coordinated by Alliance4Safety and 31 furniture companies/brands in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. It impacts clothing storage furniture from any of the participating companies, purchased since November 2019, which may have come with the recalled plastic tip restraints. The affected products were sold in furniture stores nationwide and online from November 2019 through present.

Pictured is the recalled New Age tip restraint kit with the plastic zip-tie, two brackets, and two screws.

Companies and brands participating in the recall include: American Drew, American Woodcrafters, Amini Innovation Corp. (AICO), Ashley Furniture Industries LLC, Aspenhome, Austin Group Furniture LLC, Avalon International Inc. LLC, Bassett Furniture Industries Inc., Drew & 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 Furniture, Springhill Designs, Standard Furniture Manufacturing Co. LLC, Universal Furniture, Van Thiel & Co., and Vanguard Furniture Co.

Manufactured by Vietnam-based New Age Industries, the restraint kits include a plastic zip tie, two brackets and two screws. To date, furniture companies have received two reports of the New Age tip kits breaking. No injuries have been reported, CPSC noted.

The Alliance4Safety was developed by the American Home Furnishings Alliance in 2020 to provide insights and educational resources to help protect the health of home furnishings industry workers and to preserve their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic. AHFA broadened the A4S focus in 2023 and established it as an LLC with plans to make the website a repository for a wider array of health and safety information related to home furnishings. A4S will continue providing insights for industry partners in the event of any future pandemic and also develop additional resources to help Americans maintain safe and healthy homes.
