The recalled chests of drawers can tip-over if not securely anchored to the wall, posing a tip-over and entrapment hazard that can result in serious injury or death to children. The chests of drawers do not meet the requirements of the recently updated ASTM Standard Safety Specification for Clothing Storage Units.

As of March 3, 2020 the company has received two incident reports with no injuries in Canada. In the United States, the company has received four incident reports with no injuries and two incident reports of minor injuries.

Consumers should immediately stop using the chest if not anchored to the wall.  Consumers may obtain a free anchoring repair kit to secure the chest of drawers to the wall OR may bring it back to Returns & Exchanges at any IKEA location for a refund.

For more information, consumers may contact IKEA Customer Support Centre at 1-800-661-9807 or online to access Product Recalls.
