Target has issued a recall alert for a popular brand of dressers, the retailer said recently. The dresser, which comes in several colors, including black, brown and tan, could pose a hazard if it topples, according to a federal recall notice.

The recall is for Target’s Room Essentials 4-drawer dressers, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said in the notice. The drawer could cause “serious tip-over and entrapment hazards” to consumers, the agency said.
