IKEA Dresser Recalls and Tip-Over Risks

In recent years, IKEA has recalled millions of dressers due to their potential to tip over and cause serious injuries or even death. The recalled models include the popular MALM series, as well as other dressers that do not meet the voluntary industry standard for stability. These dressers pose a significant risk, especially to young children who may climb on them or pull them over.

Injuries and Deaths Linked to IKEA Dresser Tip-Overs

Tragically, numerous injuries and deaths have been linked to IKEA dresser tip-overs. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), at least 89 incidents of tip-overs involving IKEA MALM and other IKEA chests and dressers have been reported, resulting in 87 injuries and 8 deaths to children between 1989 and 2016. These heartbreaking statistics highlight the urgent need for action and accountability.

What to Do If You Own a Recalled IKEA Dresser

If you own an IKEA dresser that has been recalled, it’s crucial to take immediate steps to ensure your family’s safety. First, check the IKEA website or contact the company directly to determine if your specific dresser model is included in the recall. If it is, IKEA offers consumers the choice of a full refund or a free wall-anchoring repair kit. We strongly recommend securing your dresser to the wall, even if it is not a recalled model, to prevent potential tip-over accidents.
