A voluntary recall of 18,000 children's four-door dressers was announced Wednesday. The recall is for "Emily" and "Ryan" style children's dressers. The dressers become unstable when children climb on them, making them tip over, which causes personal injury or death. Two reports of deaths associated with the dressers have been reported. The exact cause of the deaths has not been determined.
This voluntary recall involves "Emily" style four-drawer dressers with model numbers M4712, M4722, M4732 and M4742 and similar "Ryan" dressers with the model M4733.
The model number, "Million Dollar Baby" and "MADE IN TAIWAN" are printed on a label located on the back of the dresser. The recalled dresser is a part of the DaVinci children's bedroom furniture collection.
The recalled dressers were sold at JCPenney and independent juvenile specialty stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, BabiesRUs.com, BabyUniverse.com and other online retailers from January 2006 through June 2010 for between $230 and $300.
Consumers should immediately stop using and keep the dresser out of a child's reach to prevent serious injury. Consumers can contact Million Dollar Baby to receive a free retrofit kit that contains a wall anchor strap, which attaches to the dresser and wall to help prevent the dresser from tipping and causing injury.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the recall in cooperation with Bexco Enterprises Inc.
