Description: FEBRUARY 10, 1992 Release # 92-051 Devan Designs Furniture Manufacturer To Provide Modification Kits WASHINGTON, DC -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Devan Designs, Inc. of Marion, NC is providing a free modification kit for certain pieces of furniture in its "Rainbow," "Color Plus," and "Perimeter" Collections, marketed under the brand name Lexington Furniture Industries. The drawers of this furniture are equipped with easy gliding rollers which offer minimal resistance when opening. If several drawers of these pieces are opened to their full extension, the furniture can tilt forward, possibly causing serious injury or death. The CPSC was informed of this potential hazard by Devan Designs, Inc. after the report of a death which occurred when a five-drawer dresser fell on top of a 20-month-old child. Approximately 4,050 consumers purchased this furniture between December 1989 and June 1991 at furniture stores nationwide. The retail cost of these units ranged from $300 to $550 each. Devan Designs, Inc. developed one simple modification kit for all pieces which helps prevent the furniture from tilting forward. These minor modifications can be made by consumers in their homes. The modification program covers the following products: Rainbow #12 and Color Plus #13 Collections Item Product Numberas of 2/1/91 Previous ProductNumber Door Dresser 506 01 Double Dresser 222 02 Chest 306 11 Chest 307 12 Bachelor Chest 513 10 Student Desk 532 27 Door Bachelor Chest * 18 Wardrobe * 17 Senior Dresser * 06 Double Dresser * 16 Computer Desk * 93 Night Stand 621 21 * Discontinued Perimeter #17 Collection Item Product Number Door Dresser 506 Double Dresser 222 Chest 306 Chest 307 Bachelor Chest 513 Student Desk 532 Open Pier Cabinet 696 Left Pier Cabinet 697 Right Pier Cabinet 698 Night Stand 621 Consumers should examine their Devan furniture and check the product numbers listed in the furniture's brochure.
