WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Sandberg Manufacturer Co., of Los Angeles, Calif., is voluntarily recalling about 8,200 children's dressers. The dresser can tip over during use, posing a serious injury hazard to consumers.

Sandberg and CPSC have received one report of a dresser tipping over, though no one suffered injuries.

The recalled 4-drawer children's dressers have the model number (#26224) and production date (09-01 or older) located on the lower half of the back of the dresser. The wooden dressers come in light brown or off- white and have heart-shaped handles.

Independent home furnishing stores nationwide sold these dressers from July 1999 through November 2001 for about $230.

Consumers who have the dressers should immediately stop children from using them. Consumers should contact Sandberg Manufacturer Co. at (800) 498-2979 between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday to receive simple instructions for conducting an in-home repair.
