Death toll at 8 from tip-overs of IKEA Malm dressers

Death toll at 8 from tip-overs of IKEA Malm dressers”

They say their toddler was resting alone during naptime when a three-drawer Malm dresser from Ikea tipped over and crushed him to death.

Jozef Dudek's father found the toddler trapped under the item of furniture, which was recalled previous year, in his bedroom.

The same dresser, which was recalled past year is reportedly responsible for seven other small children's deaths.

In a written statement to ABC News, Ikea said, "Our hearts go out to the affected family, and we offer our honest condolences during this most hard time".

The 29 million recalled chests and dressers include various Malm three-, four-, five- and six-drawer models, as well as other chests and dressers that were sold by Ikea.

Ikea did not address the validity of these numbers, but they did note in their statement that the recall of Malm dressers goes back many years, and argued that it would be impossible to truly know how numerous items are still now being used.

In total, 29 million dressers and chests were recalled by Ikea, and the recall encompass a variety of styles.

In a new statement to NPR, IKEA said it stresses to consumers that they must use the wall attaching hardware included with their chest or drawers since they can easily be pulled down by a young child.

Feldman added, "It has always been our view that furniture stability should be built into a dresser and anchoring should be a secondary method of securing furniture. Be that as it may, it ought to be made safe by plan at first", Feldman said.

LaMarcus Aldridge's contract extended by Spurs
Aldridge, 32, left the Trail Blazers in 2015 when he signed a four-year, $84 million contract with the Spurs. It will be interesting to see if his personal production improves this season.

Ikea offered condolences to the family of the boy who was killed.

"Our hearts go out to the influenced family, and we offer our earnest sympathies amid this most troublesome time", the organization said in an announcement.

Ikea has come under fire for selling products that don't adhere to voluntary national safety standards.

Mann's firm has already represented three families of toddlers who were killed when the now-recalled dressers fell on them.

According to a statement from the one of the family's lawyers, Alan M. Feldman of Philadelphia's Feldman Shepherd lawfim, the recall was "poorly publicized by IKEA and ineffective in getting these defective and unstable dressers out of children's bedrooms".
