January 16, 2020 — Safety officials are warning consumers of a serious tip-over hazard after testing the Hodedah HI4DR four-drawer dresser.
The problem is similar to the risk posed by millions of IKEA dressers that were recalled after several children died in tip-over accidents.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is pressuring the manufacturer to issue a recall.
In the meantime, the agency is warning consumers to anchor the Hodedah HI4DR four-drawer dresser to the wall or to put the dresser in a place where children cannot get near it.
The Hodedah HI4DR dresser weighs about 75 pounds without anything in the drawers. If it tips over, it could easily crush a child.
Tests found that it is unstable, posing serious tip-over and entrapment hazards that can result in severe injuries or death, the CPSC warns.
The dressers were sold online at Amazon.com, Walmart.com, Sears.com, and Homedepot.com for between $100 and $200.
