Ikea to stop selling dresser linked to death of child in Minnesota


WASHINGTON — Ikea has agreed to stop selling and recall a dresser that had a tipping problem that had injured several people, including a 22-month-old child from Apple Valley who was killed in February.

The recall was announced Tuesday by Ikea and the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission. It came a month after three members of Congress, including Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, called on federal regulators to push for a ban on sales, as well as a recall.

Ikea has sold 29 million of the Malm brand dressers involved in the accidents. Ikea will now recall the dressers, offer refunds to buyers and stop new sales until the tip-over problem has been addressed.
