South Shore Furniture is recalling more than 300,000 chests due to tip over risks.

The recalled chests are unstable if they are not anchored to the wall, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reported.

One fatality has been reported.

The chests were online at Walmart, Amazon, Target and other retailers from October 2009 through July 2018 for about $60.

Consumers should immediately stop using any recalled chest that isn't properly anchored to the wall, and place it an area that children can't access.

South Shore will issue a full refund and pick up chests for free.

Consumers can also send in the chest with a pre-paid shipping label from the company.

Additionally, the company is giving away free tip-over restraint kits and offering free in-home installation of the kit.
