Ikea warns on chests

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

A YEAR af­ter Ikea chests tipped over and fa­tally in­jured two boys, the Swedish fur­ni­ture gi­ant and US safety reg­u­la­tors say con­sumers should keep the fur­ni­ture — 27 mil­lion chests and dressers — away from chil­dren un­less the prod­ucts are mounted to a wall. Ikea is of­fer­ing a free kit to help con­sumers af­fix the fur­ni­ture to a wall. The kit will be avail­able to peo­ple who bought chests and dressers above spe­cific heights. Nei­ther the com­pany nor the US Con­sumer Prod­uct Safety Com­mis­sion de­scribed the move as a re­call.
