Bernhardt Recalls Marquesa Dressers and Nightstands
Bernhardt Furniture is recalling about 1,700 Marquesa dressers and nightstands that are unstable posing a serious tip-over and entrapment hazard if not properly anchored to the wall.
The company has received two reports of the furniture tipping over when the drawers were opened, including one injury to an adult involving an arm bruise and neck stiffness.
The recall involves Marquesa mirrored glass front dressers with model number 359-044 and Marquesa mirrored glass front nightstands with model number 359-234. Both items have a gray cashmere finish and mirrored glass drawer fronts with metal overlays. The series and style numbers are printed on a white label on the back of the product. The first three characters of the number will be 359 followed by the style number.
The pieces were made in Vietnam and sold at independent furniture stores nationwide from March 2015 through May 2016 for between $2,000 and $4,200.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has advised consumers to stop using the products that have not been properly anchored to the wall and place them in an area that children cannot access. They have also been advised to contact Bernhardt directly or the store where they were purchased for a free counterweight repair kit including a wall anchor. Bernhardt is offering a free in-home installation of the repair kit.
Consumers can contact Bernhardt toll-free at 844-288-5295 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or online at www.bernhardt.com and click on the recall alert link at the bottom of the page for more information.
