The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has recalled the above three-drawer Natart dresser (model number 3033) by Gemme Juvenile Inc. and the Million Dollar Baby dresser (models M4712, M4722, M4732, M4742, M4733) by Bexco Enterprises Inc.. Both dressers pose a risk of entrapment and tipping hazard.
The Natart dressers were recalled for a retrofit after a two-year-old boy got trapped inside a drawer and then suffocated. Two deaths were reported after the Million Dollar Baby dressers trapped toddlers in the U.S.
From January 2005 to December 2010, the Natart dressers were sold at Furniture Kidz and other independent juvenile specialty stores and at Baby.com. From January 2006 through June 2010, the Million Dollar Baby dressers were sold at JCPenney and independent juvenile specialty stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, BabiesRUs.com, BabyUniverse.com and other online retailers.
Customers are advised to immediately remove the dressers from a child's reach.
