Ikea Fixes ‘Deathtrap Drawers’ After Death of Two Toddlers

Ikea drawers, defected productIkea plans to fix their drawers and dressers for free after two toddlers were killed when the drawers fell on top of them.

The company issued a repair program with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to provide free anchoring kits to anyone with children’s drawer taller than 23 1/2 inches or adult dressers and drawer chests taller than 29 1/2 inches.

However the product is not being recalled.

Ikea wants to provide free kits to the 27 million people who purchased that have replacements such as tip-over restraints, wall anchoring hardware, instructions, and warning labels.

These kit replacements come after two children were killed in separate accidents, after the drawers tipped over and fell on top of the kids.

In both incidents, the drawers were now secured to the wall.
