0

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Rowe Fine Furniture Inc. is recalling about 220 ottomans because young children could become trapped inside its storage compartment and suffocate.

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.
