Target has recalled the room essential 4-drawer dresser due to tip-over and entrapment hazards.
While the US agency reports 12 have tipped, it adds that no injuries have been reported.
Target has recalled 178,000 Room Essentials four-drawer chests in the US and Canada due to a potential tip-over hazard that can occur when the units are not anchored to the wall. No injuries have been reported.
Over 175,000 have been sold in the United States, and 3,000 additional units were sold in Canada.
Any dresser not properly anchored to the wall should be placed in an area not accessible to children.
The dressers were sold at around $118 across the nation in Target stores and online between January 2013 and April 2016. The black dressers have model number 249-05-0103, the espresso dressers have model number 249-05-0106, and the maple-colored dressers bear model number 249-05-0109. Consumers can receive a full refund by returning the dresser to any Target store.
