Modus Furniture Recalls Dressers Due to Tip-Over and Entrapment Hazards
The CPSC says the recalled dressers are unstable if the mirror is not installed posing serious tip-over and entrapment hazards that can result in death or injuries to children. The dressers do not comply with one of the performance requirements of the U.S. voluntary industry standard (ASTM 2057-17). The tip-over restraint kits do not comply with the performance requirements of the U.S. voluntary industry standard (F3096-14).
This recall involves the Brighton nine-drawer dressers, Bow-front dressers, Travis nine-drawer dressers, Travis nine-drawer double dressers, Bevelle dressers and Wooden nine-drawer dressers with tapered feet, manufactured and sold from November 2017 to February 2019. The mahogany and cherry wood veneers dressers have satin nickel-finished pull knobs and handles. Each dresser is about 63 inches wide by 20 inches deep and 41 inches high, and weighs about 245 pounds. A label on the back of each recalled dresser displays the date of manufacture and the words Made in Indonesia.
Although no incidents or injuries have been reported consumers should always keep children away from the dressers until the repair is completed.
