Details: IKEA, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a repair program which includes a free wall-anchoring kit for the chests and dressers listed above. The chests/dressers can pose a tip-over hazard if they are not securely attached to a wall.

IKEA received two separate reports of children who died after a MALM chest tipped over and fell on them. IKEA and CPSC also received 14 additional reports of tip-over incidents, 4 resulting in injury. About 7 million MALM chests and 20 million other IKEA chests and dressers are part of the nationwide repair program.

If you have any of these chests or dressers, you should immediately stop using them until you are able to securely anchor them to a wall to prevent potential injuries. This applies to all IKEA children’s chests and dressers taller than 23 and a half inches and adult chests and dressers taller than 29 and a half inches.

For any new chests and dressers sold, IKEA will provide a kit with screws and anchors free of charge at the register at the time of purchase. If you have previously purchased a chest of drawers unit, a free hardware kit is available in Customer Service Returns. You may also contact IKEA by phone to get a free hardware kit or register to receive one in the mail online Here.
