IKEA issues warning after third child dies from toppling unit

IKEA has issued another warning over free-standing furniture after a third child was crushed to death by a toppling unit. 

It is a renewed warning to parents to anchor free-standing chests and dresser. 

Last July, following the deaths of two children, IKEA issued a warning to anchor furniture and announced a free repair program that involved sending out wall
anchors for about 27 million chests and drawers. 

IKEA said so far it has sent out 300,000 anchoring kits to consumers. 

In the wake of this third death, IKEA plans to expand its repair program, but hasn’t elaborated on how it would raise awareness.
