Even more dressers recalled because of tip-over hazards

In the news recently, there has been a lot of talk about the tip-over hazards of certain dressers. In one case, there was even a viral video showing a two-year-old boy miraculously saving his twin brother after one of these dangerous dressers fell on him.

While certain dressers sold by IKEA have definitely received most of the recent press, it is important to remember that there are actually several other types of dressers sold today that may pose a risk to your children. In fact, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) just released yet another recall notice for a line of dressers because of potential tip-over hazards.

This recent recall focuses on a line of dressers distributed by Linon Home Décor Products Inc., and sold exclusively on Wayfair.com from September 2015 to August 2016. Specifically, the dressers involved are Cynthia style 5-drawer dressers, which were sold in a cream color and measure 40.25-inches high, 17-inches wide and 13.5-inches deep.

According to the recall notice, these dressers are unstable if not anchored, meaning they pose a "tip-over and entrapment hazard that can result in death or injuries to children." If you think you may own one of these dressers, the recall notice says you should immediately stop using it if it is not properly anchored, and put it somewhere that your children cannot get to it. Also, you should contact the distributor for a refund or tip-restraint kit.

Unfortunately, this recall is simply the most recent of many over the last few years. If you or your child has suffered an injury as a result of one of these dressers tipping over, you have rights. Contact an experienced attorney today to learn how you can seek justice.
