LANSING, Mich. —

A recall of more than 300,000 "Libra" 3-drawer dressers has been issued by manufacturer South Shore after a 2-year-old was killed after the product tipped over.

According to ConsumerReports.org , the recall is issued by South Shore, The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada.

The "Libra" dresser is sold in the United States and Canada.

The recall states that the chest, which comes in nine different colors, may tip over if not properly anchored to a wall.
