Ikea recalls millions of dressers again, following the eighth report of a toddler being killed by a piece of its furniture

  • Ikea is reissuing its recall on Malm dressers and chests. 
  • Eight children have reportedly died after furniture from the line tipped on top of them. 
  • The company is offering full refunds. 

Ikea is recalling the Malm dresser again, after another toddler was reportedly crushed by the furniture. 

On Tuesday, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a new recall of the Malm dresser following a newly reported toddler death. In May, a two-year-old in Buena Park, California, reportedly died after being trapped under an unanchored Malm chest that tipped over.

Ikea is offering full refunds for the dresser, which costs $70 to $200, if it was manufactured from 2002 to 2016. 

Alternately, customers can request a free wall-anchoring kit for the dressers to prevent them from tipping over on small children. 

The recall impacts 17.3 million chests and dressers from Ikea's Malm series.

Israel pressed Stockholm to condemn a report by a Swedish newspaper about alleged body-snatching that has stoked tensions between the two countries. Sweden's Aftonbladet newspaper sparked the row last week when it published a report claiming Israeli soldiers snatched Palestinian youths to steal their organs and returned their dismembered bodies days later. The Swedish government has declined to condemn the piece, saying it has to respect the principle of freedom of expression enshrined in its constitution. Hundreds of Israelis have signed an online petition to boycott the Swedish retail giant IKEA to protest the article and Stockholm's stance, the daily Haaretz reported.

The CPSC renewed the recall after previously recalled Ikea chests and dressers were blamed in eight reports of tip-over-related child deaths.

Other reports include a 22-month-old in Minnesota named Theodore McGee, who died in February when Ikea's Malm chest of drawers toppled over on him. A two-year-old boy from West Chester, Pennsylvania, also died after an unanchored Malm chest tipped over and pinned him to his bed, according to CPSC.

According to Ikea, the company has received 186 reports of Malm chests and dressers tipping over, including 91 reports of the line injuring children. Ikea has also received 113 reports of other recalled Ikea chests and dressers tipping over, resulting in 53 reported injuries. 

Ikea discontinued sales of the Malm furniture line in 2016, when the first toddler deaths were reported. 

To claim the refund or anchoring kit, customers should contact Ikea at 866-856-4532 or online at www.IKEA-USA.com/recallchestsanddressers.
