Target recalls 4-drawer dressers that could harm children

SHREVEPORT, La. - Target is recalling 175,000 4-drawer dressers that could tip over causing serious injuries to children.

Company officials say the Room Essentials 4-drawer dressers are unstable if they are not anchored to the wall, posing tip-over and entrapment hazards that can result in death or injuries to children. 

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission there have been 12 reports of dressers tipping or collapsing, including tipping over on two three-year-old children. No injuries have been reported.

The dressers were sold at Target stores nationwide and online at Target.com from Jan. 2013 through April 2016 for about $118.

You should immediately stop using the recalled dresser and return it to any Target store for a full refund.
