Ridgewood Recalls Four-Drawer Dressers Amid Concerns of Tip-Over and Entrapment Hazards


October 09, 2019

UNITED STATES – According to an online news article published by nbc25news.com, and as reported by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Ridgewood has issued a recall of Belmont four-drawer dressers that pose tip-over and entrapment hazards that may cause injuries and death.*

Ridgewood Industries, Inc. of Canada, the manufacturer of Belmont four-drawer dressers sold exclusively at Kmart, has issued a recall of the dressers (Recall No. 20-003) due to tip-over and entrapment hazards that may cause injuries and death to children.  Also, the models of dressers over 30 feet tall do not meet performance requirements governed by U.S. voluntary industry standards (ASTM F2057-14).

The effective date of the Ridgewood Belmont dresser recall is October 3, 2019, and the recall affects approximately 1 million dressers.  All dressers have plastic drawer glides and were sold in 2 sizes and in four colors, each with its own model number that can be found on the instruction manual accompanying each dresser.
