Target is recalling about 175,000 4-drawer dressers because they can fall over if they are not properly anchored to a wall.

The dressers were sold for about $118 at stores nationwide and online at Target.com, between January 2013 and April 2016.
Target stated that it has received 12 reports of dressers tipping or collapsing, including tipping over on two three-year-old children. Nobody was reported hurt in the tipping incidents.
“Consumers are being advised to return the recalled dresser to any Target store for a full refund.”
