4-door dressers recalled for tipover, entrapment hazards
The Journal Gazette
Ridgewood Industries Inc. of Canada has recalled about 1 million Belmont four-door dressers with plastic drawer glides that can tip over if not anchored to a wall, posing hazards that can result in death or injuries to children, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced.
The dressers, in two sizes and four colors, were sold at Kmart stores nationwide from April 2013 to November 2018 for about $40, the commission said in a statement.
Consumers should stop using any recalled dresser not properly anchored to a wall and place them in an area that children cannot access, the statement said.
They should contact Ridgewood to receive a free anchoring kit, including a wall anchor strap; consumers can request a one-time free home installation of the strap.
Ridgewood can be reached toll-free at 888-222-7460 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fort Wayne time weekdays or go to www.ameriwood.com and click on Support.
