Swedish household products chain IKEA has announced that it will be recalling around 27 million chests and drawers because they are in danger of tipping over if not securely anchored to a wall.
Two incidents in 2014 occurred where the unstable chests tipped over and fatally injured a child.
The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission is advising people who are using IKEA’s furniture to immediately stop using IKEA’s MALM children’s chests higher than 23 ½ inches and adult chests and dressers higher than 29 ½ inches unless they are safely mounted to a wall.
Consumers are encouraged to reach out to IKEA for free wall anchoring repair kits for chests and dressers by calling their United States offices at (888) 966-4532 or logging on to www.IKEA-USA.com/saferhomestogether.
