Crate and Barrel, CB2 and Bed Bath & Beyond recently agreed to product recalls, the Consumer Products Safety Commission announced. In each case, consumers are told to immediately stop using the products and advised they’re entitled to a full refund.

The most expensive items are a Trace Brass Bookcase and Trace Black Bookcase sold in CB2 stores nationwide and online at CB2.com for about $1,400. CB2 received 11 reports of the bookcase collapsing when loaded, according to the CPSC. No injuries were reported.

The bookcases, 62 inches tall and 34 inches wide, were manufactured in Vietnam and imported by CB2. Some 400 were sold from June 2019 through July 2020. Purchasers can contact CB2 for instructions on how to receive a free replacement bookcase or a full refund.
