If they are not anchored to the wall, they can pose serious tip-over and entrapment hazards that can result in death or injuries to children.
Over 175,000 have been sold in the United States, and 3,000 additional units were sold in Canada. The CPSC says that they have received 12 reports of dressers either tipping or collapsing, which includes two instances of a dresser tipping over on a 3-year-old child. The dressers measure 41 7/8 inches tall by 31 ½ inches wide by 15 11/16 inches deep.
The recalled items were sold in Target Stores nationwide and online from January 2013 to April 2016 for around $118.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has advised consumers to immediately stop using any recalled dresser not anchored to the wall and put in in an area that children can not access.
