Natart Chelsea Dressers Recalled By Gemme Juvenile To Reduce Tip-Over Hazard; Death of Toddler Reported

This recall involves the Chelsea three-drawer windowed dresser bearing model number 3033. The dressers were sold in five finishes Cappuccino, Cappuccino with a brown top, Ebony, Ebony with a brown top, and Antique or French White. A sticker with the word “Natart” and the firm’s logo is affixed to the inside of the top drawer. In addition, most dressers will have the model number, “Natart Juvenile,” “Made in Canada” and “Chelsea 3 Drawer Dresser” printed on another label located on the back of the dresser. The recalled dresser measures 35-inches high by 21- inches deep by 39- inches wide and is part of the Chelsea children’s bedroom furniture collection.

The dressers were sold at Furniture Kidz and other independent juvenile specialty stores and at Baby.com from January 2005 to December 2010 for between $600 and $900.

The Chelsea three-drawer dresser met applicable standards when produced, but was manufactured prior to the implementation of a stricter industry standard in May 2009. The new safety standard requires tip-over restraints that attach to the interior wall, framing or other support be included with all dressers to help prevent tip-over entrapment hazards to young children. If a young child climbs up open dresser drawers, the dresser can tip over and pose a risk of entrapment. The CPSC warns every two weeks a child dies when a piece of furniture or a television falls on him or her.
