Ikea recalls dressers following deaths
Ikea is recalling millions of dressers after six kids were killed in the U-S when it toppled over.
The list of recall list contains more than a dozen styles, including one of their best sellers called the Malm dresser.
The recalled chests of drawers can tip-over if not securely anchored to the wall, posing a tip-over and entrapment hazard that can result in death or serious injuries to children.
Health Canada has received 1 report of a tip-over incident with a minor injury in Canada related to the use of Ikea chests of drawers.
Ikea Canada has received 3 reports of tip-over incidents with 2 minor injuries in Canada related to the use of the Ikea chests of drawers.
Ikea A US has received 78 reports of tip-over incidents involving Ikea chests of drawers in the United States, resulting in 6 deaths and 31 injuries to children between the ages of 19 months and 10 years old.
The recall does not apply to any dresser or chest that has been secured to the wall. Customers are able to get a free wall-anchoring kit on the Ikea website, or get a full refund in store.
