So far, Ikea has received 186 reports of "tip-over" incidents involving the chests and dressers, 91 of which injured children.

The recalled products pose a tip-over and entrapment hazard that can result in death or injuries to children. IKEA is offering free pickup for those who want to return dressers or free in-home anchoring service on request.

The company has received eight reports of children being killed by falling units - including the most recent one in May when a 2-year-old boy in California was trapped under a three-drawer MALM chest.

The company set up a website to help consumers identify dressers that have been recalled. Anchor TVs, furniture and appliances in the home.

Due to another child dying because of the dresser, Ikea is re-issuing the recall. Act now! Those w/recalled chests receive a refund w/ free pick-up, or a free anchoring kit w/free install.
