Hillsdale Furniture has recalled thousands of its five-drawer chests because they can tip over if they’re not secured to the wall.

Dressers recalled due to tip-over, entrapment hazards

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, if dresser tips-over a child, it can cause serious injuries, even death.

The dressers were sold in different colors at Bob’s Discount Furniture and other retailers nationwide for about $280.

Consumers should immediately stop using any recalled chest that is not properly anchored to the wall and place it in an area that children cannot access.
