IKEA Has Recalled 29 Million Items After An Eighth Child Died IKEA

IKEA has recently recalled 29 million items after an eighth child died after being injured by one of their products.

The recall was originally announced in June 2016 and only applies to the US and Canada, but a new incident has forced the recall to be relaunched.

Accusations have been made, suggesting the recall wasn’t communicated to the public correctly and people with the product have missed the warning.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, eight children under three-years-old have been killed after an IKEA product fell on them.

The items are an adult set of chests and drawers, over 75 centimetres and children’s chests and drawers taller than 60 centimetres.

They are urging customers with the products to contact IKEA. 

The company is offering a free wall-mounting kit or a full refund for the items. 

Their website states, "IKEA is voluntarily recalling all chests and dressers that do not meet the performance requirements of the U.S. voluntary industry standard (ASTM F2057-14)."

Without the wall mounting kit, the drawers can easily fall over, which in the past has caused injury or even death.
