The child was alone in his room when the dresser fell, and was later found trapped underneath the Ikea product by his father.

And four have been crushed by the same model of furniture, the Malm chest of drawers, which IKEA recalled in 2016.

Feldman has represented the families of three other toddlers who were crushed to death by dresser tip-overs. He said the parents were "absolutely distraught" over the death of their child, and added that they were not aware the Malm dresser was recalled. Dudek family lawyer Daniel Mann told ABC that's exactly what happened to Jozef during his nap time and that family is "absolutely distraught" over his death. "What makes this death more heartbreaking is the fact that last year's so-called recall was poorly publicized by IKEA and ineffective in getting these defective and unstable dressers out of children's bedrooms".

"Sadly, Jozef's death was completely avoidable, had IKEA adhered to safe design standards", said Feldman.

Mr Mann declined to give further details about the boy's death but said his family plan on suing Ikea.

"Companies must be held accountable for their products' safety and the CPSC must be strong enough to force companies to take action in ways that successfully get recalled products out of homes", the groups said.

The safety agency said it had opened an investigation. Our hearts go out to the affected family, and we offer our honest condolences during this most hard time.

The company is offering full refunds or free wall-anchoring kits to those who still have the dressers.

Ikea previously agreed to pay three families a combined $50 million (£38 million) in compensation after their children died when the chest of drawers toppled over on top of them.

The December 2016 $50m payout was divided between the families of Camden Ellis, Curren Collas and Ted McGee, all 2-years-old and who all died under falling IKEA units.

The Swedish furniture manifacturer recalled 29 million items sold in the United States past year after they failed safety tests.
