Ikea Settles With $50 Million To Families Of 3 Boys Crushed By Dressers
After the death of 3 children due to the tipping of furniture dressers in the U.S, IKEA has agreed to pay a total of $50 million to the families of the children.
The lawyers of the families also confirmed that the IKEA had also agreed to donate funds to children’s hospitals as part of the settlement agreement.
2 of the toddlers died in 2014, in separate incidents when MALM dressers fell on them.
The third death was that of a 22-month-old boy who was killed this year in a similar incident. It had occurred after IKEA had announced a repair program which included a free wall-anchoring kit.
Johanna Iritz, a spokeswoman for Ikea in Sweden, said that at this stage “it would be inappropriate to comment” while the case was still before the courts.
In June 2016, IKEA recalled 8 million of the MALM chests and dressers and 21 million similar models of chests and dressers in the United States.
In Canada, about 6.6 million were also recalled.
