This four-drawer case piece is among those recalled by Target due to a potential tip-over hazard.

- Target is recalling approximately 178,000 dressers because they can tip over and pose a hazard to children.

Target says it is recalling almost 180,000 dressers because they can tip over and pose a risk to children.

Consumers who purchased the recalled dressers are eligible for a refund.

While the US agency reports 12 have tipped, it adds that no injuries have been reported.

The company has recalled 175,000 of the units in the US and another 3,000 sold in Canada. Stores will offer a refund to customers, company officials said in a posting on the Consumer Product Safety Commission's website.

The dressers, which were sold at Target Corp. stores and Target.com between January 2013 and April 2016, came in three colors: black, espresso and maple. There was one known injury, in which one of the "Mainstays chests of drawers" made by Ameriwood Home tipped over and injured a 4-year-old.
