Thornwood Furniture Recalls Toy Chests

Thornwood Furniture Manufacturing, of Phoenix, Ariz., is recalling about 400 toy chests for replacement. The lids on these toy chests could fall onto a child's head or neck.

The oak toy chests have model number 841LQ or 1814LQ located on the rear panel. They measure 35-inches long, 19-inches high and 19-inches deep. A 1-inch-wide ventilation opening runs the entire length of the front of the toy chest just below the lid. The toy chests have one adjustable lid support. The Thornwood Furniture name and address are located on the product sticker located on the rear panel of the toy chest. Furniture stores nationwide, including Rooms To Go, Bedroom Superstores and MN Goldstein, sold the toy chests from January 1999 through November 1999 for about $170.

Consumers should immediately stop children from using the toy chests and contact the store where purchase for information on getting a free replacement. For additional information, consumers can contact Thornwood Furniture toll-free at (877) 351-0067 between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. MT Monday through Friday, or on their web site at www.thornwood.com.
