Dressers sold at Rooms To Go recalled because of tip-over, child entrapment hazard

This is the 2nd recall in 2 months of a unit sold exclusively at Rooms To Go that allegedly does not meet the requirements of the STURDY Act

SEFFNER, Fla. — Another dresser sold exclusively at Rooms To Go has been recalled because it does not comply with the performance requirements of the STURDY (Stop Tip-Overs of Risky Dressers on Youth) Act according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission.

On Thursday, the CPSC announced a recall involving 400 Cedona Natural View six-drawer dressers. Although there have been no injuries or incidents reported, the CPSC said that the units are unstable if they are not anchored to the wall, thus posing “serious tip-over and entrapment hazards” that can kill or injure children.

This is the second recall in the past two months for a dresser sold exclusively at Rooms To Go that allegedly does not meet the performance requirements of STURDY.

The recall involves the Cedona Natural View six-drawer dresser with model number 33117082, which is printed in black ink on a label at the back of the unit. The dresser is 68 inches long by 18 inches wide and 36 inches tall and weighs about 238 pounds.

The CPSC said the unit was made in India and sold at Rooms To Go stores nationwide and at www.roomstogo.com from November 2023 through February for about $1,000.  

Consumers have been advised to stop using the recalled dresser immediately and go to their local Rooms To Go for a replacement. The retailer, which also is contacting all known purchasers directly, will schedule a free delivery of the replacement dresser and remove the recalled dresser from their home, the CPSC said.  

For more information, consumers can contact Rooms To Go toll-free at 855-688-0919 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. Or they can email productcare@roomstogo.com or go online at www.cedonadresserrecall.com.
