Ikea Issues Recall on Some Kids Furniture

by ParentCo. July 06, 2016

Ikea has issued a recall for at least 29 million chests and dressers that can easily tip over onto children, injuring or killing them. The furniture giant said Monday that after the three deaths of three children it is no longer selling its "Malm" series products because they "could be a danger," Ikea USA president Lars Peterson told NBC News. The announcement comes after an anchor campaign last year — and amid staggering statistics: every 24 minutes, a child is sent to the emergency room by a falling piece of furniture or a television, according the federal government's watchdog agency, the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Every two weeks, a child dies.
