Ikea has relaunched the recall of 29 million chests and dressers following the death of an eighth child.

In all, IKEA has received 186 reports of tip-over incidents involving MALM chests and dressers, including 91 injuries to children, while they have also received 113 reports of tip-overs for other IKEA chests and dressers that lead to injuries of 53 children.

First announcing a recall in June 2016, many have raised the question if Ikea has effectively been spreading the word about it.

The recall, which applies only to customers in the US and Canada, is for children's chests and drawers taller than 23.5 inches and adult chests and dressers taller than 29.5 inches.

Parents, if you still have a dresser from IKEA in your home and you haven't secured it to the wall, the retailer hopes you will listen to this.

Ikea is offering full refunds for anyone who no longer wants the chest and dressers manufactured between January 2002 and June 2016.

Six of them told The Financial Times that they routinely worked 11-hour days, which is illegal under Chinese law. The report relates to 3,000 high school students who take part in a three-month long work experience program ...

The recalled children's and adult chests and dressers include the MALM 3-drawer, 4-drawer, 5-drawer and three 6-drawer models and other non-MALM models.

Consumers can contact Ikea for a refund or a free wall-anchoring kit.

Ikea said the recalled products are sold with instructions that they had to be attached to walls. The company set up a website to help consumers identify dressers that have been recalled. Customers can bring them to a store, or Ikea will pick them up.

The latest death was Jozef Dudek, 2, of Buena Park, California. Some additional chests and dressers included in the recall were sold between 1985 and June 2016. While the threat is serious, the solution is simple.

Unsafe tip-over incidents often occur when curious kids climb on furniture in an attempt to access TVs, toys, remotes or other desired items.

Contact IKEA toll-free at 866-856-4532 anytime, or online at www.IKEA-USA.com or http://www.ikea.com/ms/en_US/ikea-chest-and-dresser-recall/index.html for more information and to participate in the recall.
