After the deaths of two children, a furniture company has issued a warning to consumers.
FOX News Radio’s Tonya J. Powers has the story:
IKEA is telling consumers to keep 27 million of its chests and dressers away from kids unless the products are mounted to a wall.
The company is offering a free kit to help buyers anchor the furniture, and it will be available to those who bought those chests and dressers that are above specific heights. That includes seven million of IKEA’s Malm chests.
It’s not being labeled a recall by the company or the Consumer Product Safety Commission, but an offer to repair or replace a product is technically a recall.
Two boys, both around two years old, were killed last year after Malm chests tipped over and fell on them.
IKEA is not offering a refund or telling customers to return the furniture.
