WASHINGTON, D.C. (KAIT) – Two different brands of dressers are being recalled after toddler's reported to have died.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says three toddlers have died because of a tip over hazard.

About 300 of the first dresser called the Natart Chelsea Dressers by Gemme Juvenile has been recalled.  

The CPSC says if a young child climbs on an open dresser, the dresser can tip over and possibly trap a child.

The dressers were sold at Furniture Kidz and other independent juvenile specialty stores and at Baby.com from January 2005 to December 2010 for between $600 and $900.

Gemme Juvenile says that the consumers should immediately stop using the dresser and place it out of their children's reach.

Bexco is also voluntarily recalling 18-thousand of their Million Dollar Dressers. The dressers were sold at JCPenney, individual independent stores, and online at Amazon.com.

Bexco also strongly encourages their consumers to not use the dressers but they are offering a free safety kit that can be found here.
