NEW YORK (AP) — Rowe Fine Furniture is recalling more than 200 ottomans because young children could become trapped inside its storage compartment and suffocate, officials said Thursday.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says a 3 year old was stuck inside the ottoman's storage compartment after an older sibling closed the lid. No injuries have been reported.
The recall announced Thursday is for Rowe's Dalton-style wooden ottomans with the model number F135-064 printed on a tag underneath it.
The storage compartment has a cushioned top lid. Consumers who own the ottoman should stop using it and call Rowe, at 800-458-1818, for a replacement lid which has a handle and vent for ventilation.
