Bestar Inc., of Canada is recalling about 276 juvenile dressers in the U.S. and Canada.
The dressers are unstable, posing a serious tip-over and entrapment hazard that can result in death or serious injuries to children.
No incidents or injuries are reported in the U.S. There is one report of a child in Canada receiving cuts and bruises from a dresser that tipped over without a restraint strap attached.
This recall involves Bestar Dream Dressers, juvenile five-drawer dressers sold as part of the Juvenil four-piece children’s bedroom set. The dressers were sold in the colors brown and white, and are 48 inches high, 30 inches wide and 16 inches deep, and weigh about 108 lbs. They have a melamine resin surface and the drawer handles have a matte chrome finish.
The brown dresser is model number 49250-1152 and the white dresser is model number 49250-1117. The model number is on the box and the brochure. Both dressers have UPC number 63753045292 on the box and the brochure.
The dressers, manufactured in Canada, were sold online at appliancesconnection.com, Cymax.com and Wayfair.com from June 2014, through October 2015, for about $300.
