Ikea Recalls Millions Of Dressers After 6th Death

“Ikea is recalling 29 million chests and dressers, 6 million of those in Canada,  after six children were killed when the furniture toppled over and fell on them.

The recall particularly mentions the Malm dresser. Ikea says all dressers and shelves should be anchored to the wall or well out of reach of children.

Ikea will give you free of charge a wall anchor kit or a full refund if you return your dresser.’

The recall for repair or refund also applies to Ikea Canada.

Customers are entitled to a full refund for chests and dressers manufactured between January 2002 and June 2016, and are above 60 cm for children’s dressers and above 75 cm for adults’. Dressers manufactured prior to 2002 will be eligible for a partial store credit.”
