RECALL ALERT – Rochester Retailer May Have Sold You Defective Dresser
Target has been riding a wave of momentum all summer long, and yesterday they made a huge announcement they're teaming up with Chip and Joanna Gaines... but now they're dealing with a major recall.
According to WCCO, nearly 180,000 dressers are being recalled because they can tip over and pose a risk to children.
The recall notice states these Room Essentials four-drawer dressers, which are nearly 4 feet high, can easily tip over or collapse if not anchored to the wall properly.
This has happened 12 times so far, and twice a dresser has tipped over on to a 3-year-old, but thankfully no injuries have been reported.
The dressers (seen below) were sold both in-store and online at Target.com, and come in three different colors – black, espresso and maple.
If you've got one of these dressers, stop using it immediately. If you've got kids around, move it somewhere where they can't get to it.
You can return the dresser to Target for a full refund.
