IKEA just announced a huge recall of MALM chests and dressers because of child safety issues, including the deaths of 6+ children. Here’s their full statement:
And here’s a pic of the affected models so you can see if you have one:
If you have one, they offer a bunch of options ranging from ordering a free wall-anchoring kit to them coming to your home to remove it and issuing you a refund and various options in between.
You can also always look up other product recalls on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website. This is a government site that allows you to search by product, which is nice especially if you’re making a secondhand purchase and want to know if the item was ever recalled.
As a reminder it’s always a good idea to anchor large pieces of furniture to the walls when you have small children in the house. Stay safe, everyone!
