Recall Issued For Potentially Deadly Dresser
DETROIT (WWJ) – Parents, you will want to check your child’s dresser.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says manufacturer Million Dollar Baby is voluntarily recalling 18,000 children’s four- drawer-dressers.
Officials say when a young child climbs up on open dresser drawers, the dresser becomes unstable and poses the risk of tip over and entrapment. There have been two reports of deaths associated with these dressers.
The dressers have been sold at several retailers including JC Penny and Babies R Us.
This voluntary recall involves “Emily” style four-drawer dressers with model numbers M4712, M4722, M4732 and M4742 and similar “Ryan” dressers with the model M4733. The dressers were sold in five finishes: Cherry, Ebony, Espresso, Honey Oak and White.
The model number, “Million Dollar Baby” and “MADE IN TAIWAN” are printed on a label located on the back of the dresser.
The recalled dresser measures 33-inches high by 20-inches deep by 40-inches wide and is a part of the DaVinci children’s bedroom furniture collection. The dressers are made from pine and wood composite.
The recalled dressers were sold at JCPenney and independent juvenile specialty stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, BabiesRUs.com, BabyUniverse.com and other online retailers from January 2006 through June 2010 for between $230 and $300.
