Ikea Recall All Dresser After 2 Year Old Baby Dead

Ikea Recall All Dresser After 2 Year Old Baby Dead

Please immediately stop using any recalled chest or dresser that is not properly anchored to the wall and place in an area not accessible to children.

Jozef Dudek's father found the toddler trapped under the item of furniture, which was recalled past year, in his bedroom.

Two-year-old Jozef Dudek died in May after his father put him down for a nap and returned to find his son beneath a Malm dresser from IKEA, according to a statement from the family's lawyers. The recall also notes three earlier deaths from different models of Ikea dressers in 1989, 2002 and 2007. "Unfortunately, there are 29 million of these things that were sold, and the recall was ineffective in alerting consumers about the problem about the defective condition of the dresser".

Mann says the design was inherently unsafe and charged that the company still hasn't done enough to warn consumers who may have one at home.

"From the delay in issuing a recall to lackluster efforts by Ikea to fully communicate the hazard and the recall to the public - relying instead on soft messages on securing any and all furniture - this death highlights the risks to children of tip-over incidents".

The company is offering full refunds or free wall-anchoring kits to those who still have the dressers.

The family's legal advisor, Alan M. Feldman, said the mishap happened in May and the kid was unsupervised at the time.

It said in a statement that "the initial investigation indicates that the chest involved in this incident had not been properly attached to the wall". "IKEA urges all consumers to securely attach chests to the wall with the hardware included in every IKEA chest of drawers package".

The groups of the little children were granted $50 million to be isolated among the three families.

All three families divided the $50million settlement equally between them. Being the third death in two years, the accident prompted Ikea to finally recall the Malm dresser, offering full or partial refunds. The redesign was executed to ensure that the retailer's furniture met the voluntary American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) stability standards.

Mr Mann said: "Jozef's tragic death was completely avoidable".

An eighth child - a 2-year-old California boy - has died as the result of the tip-over of a recalled IKEA Malm dresser, prompting consumer advocates to make another call for action from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and IKEA.
