CBS2/Fox 28 reports that Target is recalling over 175,000 dressers because “they pose tip-over and entrapment hazards if not properly anchored to the wall.”

There have been twelve reports of the $118 Room Essentials 4-drawer dressers tipping over or collapsing, according to officials. It’s also being reported that one instance included one of the dressers falling on two 3-year-old children. Despite the reports, there are no known injuries, says the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Owners are being urged to stop using improperly anchored dressers, put it in an area away from children, or return the product for a full refund.

The product was sold from 2013 to April of 2016, so if you’ve purchased dressers during this time frame please check the model numbers to ensure your children’s safety. The model numbers printed on the packaging of the product are as follows: 249-05-0103 (black), 249-05-0106 (espresso), or 249-05-0109 (maple).

For questions and concerns call Target at 800-440-0680 (open daily from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m.) or by visiting Targets help website here.
