Rumors broke yesterday that Ikea was going to recall millions of dressers today. And they were right. But it’s not just the Malm, as we originally heard. Ikea is recalling 29 million dressers of all varieties in partnership with the US Product Safety Commission after the death of a 22-month-old child who was crushed by a Malm dresser earlier this year.
Three American children have died from Ikea dressers in the past two years. When the dressers aren’t properly bolted to the wall they can easily tip over when the drawers are open. Ikea has even taken the dramatic step of discontinuing some types of Malm dressers entirely, wiping them from the company’s website yesterday.
“If you have or think you have one of these products, act immediately,” the Chairperson of the US Product Safety Commission said today in a statement. “It is simply too dangerous to have the recalled furniture in your home unanchored, especially if you have young children.”The six models of Malm dressers that are being recalled are below.
