Ikea recalls about 800,000 dressers due to tip-over risks

More than 800,000 Ikea dressers are being recalled because they risk tipping over and seriously injuring children.

Ikea’s Kullen three-drawer chests, imported after Aug. 12, 2019, also do not comply with the voluntary performance standards of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Ikea said it has received six reports of tip-overs involving the Kullen chests.

Two of those reports involved minor injuries.

Customers have the option of seeking a full refund or a wall-anchoring kit for the furniture.
