Target is recalling approximately 175,000 dressers because they can tip over and pose a risk to children.

The retailer says it received 12 reports of its Room Essentials four-drawer dressers falling over or collapsing. Two 3-year-old children were struck by a dresser, but no injuries have been reported.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says customers should stop using the dresser immediately and return it to any Target store for a full refund.

The dressers, which were sold at Target stores and Target.com between January 2013 and April 2016, came in three colors: Black, espresso and maple.
