On 27 February 2019, the Deputy Executive Director for U. S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued an open letter to Manufacturers, Importers, Distributors, and Retailers of Clothing Storage Units.
- The letter urges the Manufacturers, Importers, Distributors, and Retailers of Clothing Storage Units to comply with all the voluntary safety standards within and referenced by ASTM F2057-172
- The letter is in response to numerous reported child fatalities between 2007 and 2017 because of clothing storage unit tip overs.
- The letter also warns that Clothing Storage Units found to not comply with ASTM F2057-17 would regard such products as having a defect which could present a substantial product hazard under Section 15(a) of the CPSA, 15 U.S.C. § 2064(a) and therefore, CPSC would initiate an investigation and seek the corrective action.
