Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves certain Magnussen branded Home Nova Series 5-Drawer Chests, as follows:

  • Nova Series 5-Drawer Chest, sold with a model designation of B1428-10 and manufactured from August 2009 through August 2015. Each Dresser Chest is brown in color and measures approximately 54 inches tall by 40 inches wide by 18 inches deep. A label located on the back of each unit in the top left-hand corner contains the month and year of manufacture as well as the model number. The product is made of wood with a walnut veneer. The date codes are printed in MMYY (indicating month and year) format, and the recalled Dresser Chests have date codes that range between “AG09” and “AG15”, representing “August 2009” and “August 2015” respectively.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s design and retail presentation. One (1) additional image of the recalled Magnussen branded Home Nova Series 5-Drawer Chests, can be found on the Web site above.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to the CPSC, the recalled Dresser Chests are reportedly unstable if they are not firmly and securely anchored to the wall. This defect poses serious tip-over, entrapment and crush hazards that can result in injuries should the units topple and/or fall, including laceration, concussion, bone fractures and/or central nervous system (“CNS”) damage to children and adults as well as death to children, toddlers and infants.

At press time, Magnussen Home Furnishings had received one (1) report of the Dresser Chests tipping over, resulting in a minor bruise to a child.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Dressers Chests and if they are not properly anchored to a wall, please place them in an area of your home that children cannot access. After doing this, please contact Magnussen Home Furnishings for a refund. The amount of the refund will be pro-rated based on the age of the Dresser Chest.

Please note: this is a joint recall from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) and Health Canada (“HCSC”).

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly treat laceration, concussion, bone fractures and/or central nervous system (“CNS”) damage and crush injury.
