If a young child climbs up open dresser drawers, the dresser can tip over and pose the risk of entrapment. There have been two reports of the incident. An 11-month-old boy from Tulsa, Okla. and a 20-month-old girl from Camarillo, Calif. were reported to have suffocated when their dressers tipped over, entrapping them between the dresser and the floor. The cause of the deaths has not been determined, the CSPC reported.
The recalled Million Dollar Baby dressers were sold at JCPenney and other retailers nationwide and online at Amazon.com, BabiesRUs.com, BabyUniverse.com from January 2006 through June 2010 for between $230 and $300.
