Target recalls 175,000 dressers that are hazardous to children

(WHDH) — Target has recalled about 175,000 dressers that are said to be hazardous to children.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the “Room Essentials” four-drawer dressers are unstable if they are not anchored to the wall, posing serious tip-over and entrapment hazards that can result in death or injuries to children.

The recall includes dressers sold in three colors: maple, expresso, and black. The dressers measure 41 7/8 inches tall by 31 ½ inches wide by 15 11/16 inches deep

There have been 12 reports of dressers tipping or collapsing, including tipping over on two three-year-old children, the CPSC says.
