IKEA recalls over 800,000 dressers over tipping hazard

IKEA is recalling all Kullen 3-drawer chest dressers due to concerns that they'll tip over.

According to IKEA, about 820,000 Kullen 3-drawer chests are being recalled after six reports of incidents where the chests weren't anchored to the wall and tipped over.

One incident report involved the victim receiving a minor cut and another reported a minor cut and bruises.

Consumers are urged to immediately stop using the dressers if they're not properly anchored to the wall and to place it in an area that children cannot access.

Consumers should contact IKEA for either a full refund or a free wall-attachment (anchor) kit:

  • For refund: IKEA will accept in-store returns or arrange for free pick up of the chests for a full refund.
  • For wall-attachment (anchor) kit: Consumers can order a free wall-attachment (anchor) kit. Consumers can install the anchor themselves, or IKEA will provide a one-time, free in-home installation service, upon request.
