At the start of June furniture maker Pali Design of Canada recalled 20,000 pieces of children’s furniture, including armoires, dressers, hutches, and bookcases. The pieces were made between 2006 and 2010, and were sold across the United States and Canada via the internet, in independent specialty shops, and Babies R Us. A recall was called in response to a single incident where a Wendy Double Dresser tipped over because a restraining strap broke. No injuries were reported in the one case, and no similar incidents have occurred, and yet Pali Design is handing out a replacement part, indicating that they’re taking it seriously.
