Ikea is recalling 820,000 more dressers, adding to the 17.3 million it recalled in 2016. Once again the recall is due to the risk of the dressers tipping over, but this time around it's the three-drawer Kullen model being recalled; in 2016 it was the Malm model. Ikea has all the recall info and a picture of the dressers impacted here. "The recalled chest is unstable if it is not anchored to the wall, posing tip-over and entrapment hazards that may result in death or serious injuries to children," reads the recall notice. USA Today reports Ikea has been informed of six tip-over incidents, two of which caused minor injuries, related to the Kullen. Ikea will provide owners of the dressers with a wall anchoring kit or will take the dressers back for a full refund. Ikea dressers have been linked to the deaths of nine children.
