After another child was killed due to an Ikea Malm dresser toppling over, the Swedish furniture giant has once again has issued a safety recall. This makes the eighth fatality due to a topple-over accident. If you own one of these dressers, you are eligible for a full refund from this Ikea safety recall!
You Have Options
Per the Ikea safety recall, you can do one of the following:
- Bring the dresser back to the store for a refund.
- Obtain a free anchoring kit from the store.
- Have Ikea come out to your home and take the dresser away for you.
- Let Ikea anchor the dresser to your wall for you.
I emailed Ikea Customer Service regarding this, but just got a generic email. I will be bringing back my Malm dresser, which I purchased back in 2011, for a full refund. I do not want to risk my toddler getting hurt, so this is the best option.
Plus, it will help me to make more space in my house by getting rid of furniture!
Ikea Makes Safety a Priority
Update: I finally found the time to haul my Malm dresser back to the Ikea, and Customer Service took the item and refunded me the entire amount per the Ikea safety recall guidelines, no questions asked.
In fact, they have a special line in the Customer Service section dedicated to those bringing in their dressers as part of the safety recall. I was helped immediately.
I am impressed at how Ikea has responded to the fatal accidents caused by their products, showing how much they care about the safety of their customers. If you own one of the recalled dressers, make sure you abide by the Ikea safety recall tips and either get your refund or have it anchored properly to your wall.
