      Ridgewood recalls four-drawer dressers

      The dressers are unstable and can tip over if not anchored to the wall

      Ridgewood Industries of Canada is recalling about 1 million Belmont four-drawer dressers.

      The 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).

      No incidents or injuries are reported.

      This recall includes Belmont 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.
