About 1,700 Marquesa dressers and nightstands have been recalled by Bernhardt Furniture Company, of Lenoir, N.C. The recalled dressers are unstable if they are not properly anchored to the wall, posing a serious tip-over and entrapment hazard that can result in death or injuries to children. This recall involves Marquesa mirrored glass-front dressers with model number 359-044 and Marquesa mirrored glass front nightstands with model number 359-234. Both models 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. Bernhardt says it 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 dressers were sold at independent furniture stores nationwide from March 2015 through May 2016 for between $2,000 and $4,200. Consumers should immediately stop using any recalled dressers and nightstands that are not properly anchored to the wall and place them into an area that children cannot access. Contact the store where purchased or Bernhardt for a free counterweight repair kit including a wall anchor. Bernhardt is offering a free in-home installation of the counterweight repair kit with a wall anchor.
