      Ikea Again Announces Dresser Recall After Death Of 8th Child

      November 21, 2017 by admin

      Ikea once again announces the recall of MALM and other model of chests and drawers due to a very serious tip-over hazard, which can result in serious injury or death to children and adults. A complete list of the chests and dressers which are the subject of the recall can be found on the website www.IKEA-USA.com. According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Ikea has received 186 reports of tip-over accidents involving the MALM chests and dressers along with reports of 113 tip-over accidents involving other models of chests and drawers manufactured by Ikea. The recall is for chests and dressers that do not comply with U.S. voluntary industry standards for proper wall mounting, which is designed to prevent the furniture from tipping over in the first place. The CPSC just recently reported the latest known death, which took place in May of 2017, involved a 2-year old boy in California who became trapped underneath an unanchored MALM dresser that had tipped over.

      According to the CPSC, consumers should immediately stop using any recalled chest or dresser that is not properly anchored and make sure to place it away from any area where children may be present. Consumers should contact Ikea for more information about either a refund or obtaining a wall-anchoring kit. For more information about the recall, consumers can visit the CPSC website at https://www.cpsc.gov/Recalls/2018/IKEA-Reannounces-Recall-of-MALM-and-Other-Models-of-Chests-and-Dressers-Due-to-Serious-Tip-over-Hazard.
