An eighth child died from an Ikea dresser that was recalled more than a year ago because of its propensity to tip over. Two-year-old Jozef Dudek of California was killed when a three-drawer Ikea dresser tipped over and crushed him during naptime.
Child safety advocates say the death, which came to light this week, is the eighth reported child death involving an Ikea dresser or chest relating to the June 2016 recall. The items are unstable if not properly anchored to the wall, posing a serious tip-over and entrapment hazard that can result in death or serious injuries to children.
