The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall in a Thursday news release. The agency said that Rooms To Go’s Mill Valley Jr. six-drawer youth dressers are unstable unless they are bolted to a wall.

If the dressers tip over, they pose a serious risk of entrapment for small children that could result in serious injury or death.

Approxmately 200 units of the product sold have been affected by the recall, the CPSC said. They were sold at Rooms To Go stores nationwide and at from December 2023 through January 2024 for about $450, according to Consumer Reports.

The recall affects Mill Valley Jr. six-drawer youth dressers in either white or cherry with model numbers C2192Y-N04 and C2193Y-N04, the CPSC said. The dressers are approximately 57 1/2 inches long by 18 inches wide by 35 inches high, and weigh approximately 132 pounds. They have a white label on the rear panel with either “C2192Y-N04″ (White) or “C2193Y-N04″ (Cherry).

According to the CPSC, the dressers violate the Stop Tip-Overs of Unstable, Risky Dressers on Youth Act, also known as the STURDY Act. The law was enacted in 2022 and went into effect on Sept. 1, 2023; the CPSC set mandatory standards for dressers and other furnitures to ensure their stability. The products also had to be tested more rigorously and sold with strong warning labels, according to Consumer Reports.
