Ikea recalls chests & dressers

062816_recall_wide_v2

IKEA is voluntarily recalling all chests and dressers that do not meet the performance requirements of the U.S. voluntary industry standard (ASTM F2057-14). You can contact IKEA at 1-866-856-4532 or email: securit@ikea.com to discuss how to participate in the recall.

The recalled chests and dressers are unstable if they are not properly anchored to the wall, posing a tip-over and entrapment hazard that can result in death or injuries to children.

IKEA Recalls MALM and Other Models of Chests and Dressers Due to Serious Tip-Over Hazard. Consumers Urged to Anchor Chests and Dressers or Return for Refund.

The recall affects children’s chests and dressers taller than 23.5 inches and adult chests and dressers taller than 29.5 inches that do not meet the performance requirements of the U.S. voluntary industry standard. The recalled MALM chests and dressers were manufactured and sold through June 2016 and include the 3-drawer, 4-drawer, 5-drawer and 6-drawer models. Other IKEA chests and dressers in this recall were sold at various times through June 2016.

Participating

consumers can receive a full or partial refund or a free wall-anchoring repair kit.

Please immediately stop using any recalled chest or dresser that is not properly anchored to the wall and place in an area not accessible to children.

Contact IKEA for a choice between two options: a free wall-anchoring repair kit or a full or partial refund.
