The recalled bookcases are unstable and can tip over if not anchored to the wall, posing tip-over and entrapment hazards that can result in death or injuries to children.
This recall involves all Aderes bookcases. The bell-shaped bookcases have a natural finish, measure 44” x 18” x 86” and have two glass cabinet doors and six drawers. The bookcase sits on top of four legs that are affixed to two boards that are screwed into the bottom of the bookcase with eight screws on each side. The bookcases were sold with a furniture tip restraint kit. The bookcase was sold as a display cabinet and one of the following style numbers is printed on a hangtag attached to the product: 081774, 098627, and 094831.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bookcases and contact TJX for either a full refund or a refund in the form of store gift card and for instructions on how to receive a free pick-up of the bookcase. TJX is contacting known purchasers directly.
TJX has received two reports of bookcases that were unstable and began to tip forward. No injuries have been reported.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
