BESTAR Recalls Juvenile Dressers Due to Tip-over Hazard (Recall Alert)

This recall involves Bestar Dream Dressers. The dressers are 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. The dressers 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.

Hazard:
The recalled dressers are unstable, posing a serious tip-over and entrapment hazard that can result in death or serious injuries to children.

Incidents / Injuries:
None reported in the United States. Health Canada has received one report of a child in Canada receiving cuts and bruises from a dresser that tipped over without a restraint strap attached.

Remedy:
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled dressers and place the furniture into areas that children cannot access. Contact Bestar for a free repair kit containing two boards that the consumer can attach to the back of the unit, screws, a metal bracket tip-over restraint, a power drill and drill bit, new feet for the dresser, new installation instructions and warning labels. Bestar is offering free in home installation to any consumer who needs help installing the repair kit. If a consumer is unable or unwilling to install the repair kit, Bestar will pick up the dresser and provide a full refund of the purchase price.

Consumer Contact:
