1 million Belmont dressers sold exclusively at Kmart recalled due to risk of tipping over

Ridgewood is recalling about 1 million Belmont four-drawer dressers, which were sold exclusively at Kmart, due to tip-over and entrapment hazards.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the recalled dressers are unstable and can tip over if not anchored to the wall, posing serious tip-over and entrapment hazards that can result in death or injuries to children. Additionally, those models of dressers over 30 inches tall do not comply with the performance requirements of the U.S. voluntary industry standard (ASTM F2057-14).

This recall includesBelmont four-drawer dressers with plastic drawer glides. The recalled dressers were sold in two sizes and four colors, each with its own model number, which can be found on the instruction manual that came with each.
