According to the CPSC, the recalled Dresser Chests are unstable if they are not securely anchored to the wall, posing tip-over and entrapment hazards that may result in death or serious injuries to children. Additionally, KULLEN 3-drawer chests imported after August 12, 2019 do not comply with the performance requirements of the updated version of the U.S. consensus standard (ASTM 2057-19).

IKEA has received six (6) reports of tip-over incidents involving KULLEN 3-Drawer Dresser Chests that were not anchored to the wall, including one (1) report involving a minor cut and one (1) report involving minor cuts and bruises.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled KULLEN 3-Drawer Dresser Chests if not properly anchored to the wall and place it into an area that children cannot access. Instead, kindly contact IKEA for either a full refund or a free wall-attachment (anchor) kit:

For refund: IKEA will accept in-store returns or arrange for free pick up of the chests for a full refund.

For wall-attachment (anchor) kit: you can order a free wall-attachment (anchor) kit. You can install the anchor themselves or IKEA will provide a one-time, free in-home installation service, upon request.

Please note: this is a joint recall from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) and Health Canada (“HCSC”).

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly treat bone fracture, suffocation and/or asphyxiation.
