The Modus brand dressers can entrap children as a result, which may lead to serious injury or death.

The recalled dresses include Modus brand Brighton nine-drawer dressers, Bow-front dressers, Travis nine-drawer dressers, Travis nine-drawer double dressers, Bevelle dressers, and Wooden nine-drawer dressers with tapered feet.

All were manufactured between November of 2017 and February of 2019, then sold during that same time period.

The dressers were sold with mahogany and cherry wood veneers dressers and satin nickel-finished pull knobs and handles.

Each dresser is about 63 inches wide by 20 inches deep and 41 inches high, and weighs about 245 pounds. A label on the back of each recalled dresser displays the date of manufacture and “MADE IN INDONESIA.”
