Following the death of three toddlers, the US Ikea branch has issued possibly the largest recall of their drawers in history.
Despite the fatal risk involved with Ikea Malm drawers and dressers, Ikea Australia has refused to follow suit - instead the Sweedish manufacturer is urging customers to attach the furniture to the wall.
'Ikea chest of drawers are safe when attached to the wall as directed in the assembly instructions,' a spokesman told the Daily Mail.
'We spread awareness of the importance of securing furniture on our products and product instructions, on the website and in-stores.
'IKEA Australia is not undertaking the recall,' they said.
At least 29 million chests and dressers have been recalled in America since the deaths of Curren Collas, Camden Ellis and Ted McGee.
Mother of two-year-old Curren told NBC News, she came into his room one morning but couldn’t ‘see him anywhere.’
‘I didn't see him anywhere, so I went over and kind of pulled everything apart,’ she said. ‘I saw the little top of his head trapped between the dresser’ and the bed.
The most recent incident involved 22-month-old Ted McGee, the toddler was found dead under a fallen Malm six-drawer unit at his US home in February.
At the time of the incident, the product wasn’t attached to the wall, which an Ikea spokesperson said, ‘is an integral part of the product's assembly instructions’.
A video released by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission demonstrates how easy it is for furniture to tip over if it isn’t secured properly.
