On June 28, 2016, Ikea announced that it is recalling 29 million dressers due to a tip-over and entrapment hazard that can result in death or injuries to children.
Last July, IKEA, in conjunction with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), announced a recall of 27 million chests and dressers with their MALM collection because they can tip over and crush children if they aren't property anchored to the wall. The recall came after a year year-old boy from Pennsylvania died after a MALM chest tipped over and fatally pinned him against his bed. A few months later, a 23 month-old from Washington died after he became trapped beneath a 3-drawer MALM chest that tipped over. There were also 14 other reports of tip-over incidents leading to four injuries, and three additional deaths since 1989.
The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with IKEA, announced a voluntary recall of a track lighting system sold exclusively at IKEA stores because of an electric shock hazard.
