(KKTV) -- A popular dresser is being recalled after a child reportedly died when one fell on them.

The recall is for the South Shore Libra style 3-drawer chests.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the chest is unstable if it's not anchored to the wall.

The company has received two reports of the chest tipping over. Sadly, a two year-old was killed by an un-anchored, empty chest.

The commission said: South Shore has received two reports of tip-over incidents involving the recalled chests of drawers. One report stated that a child received bruises on his leg and scratches. Another incident reported a fatality involving a two year-old and an unanchored, empty 3-drawer chest.

The products were sold online by Amazon, Walmart, Target and other stores.
