Costco and Whalen are recalling their 72″ stainless steel tool cabinet.
Costco model number: 496675
Whalen model number: WSMTB72
On the inside of the right door there is a metal flange with a sharp edge that runs the length of the door. This poses a laceration hazard that has resulted in 11 reports of injuries, with 9 being minor cuts and 2 being deeper cuts that required stitches.
About 20,000 units are affected. These cabinets were sold for $500-$550 exclusively at Costco from March 2010 through October 2013. Tool cabinets sold after November 2013 do not have this issue.
If you have one of these tool cabinets, contact Whalen Storage for your free repair kit.
