Ikea has issued a Canadian recall notice for chests of drawers that can tip over and cause a safety hazard.
The Swedish furniture multinational says it will repair or pay a refund for chests of drawers that don’t meet North American safety standards.
It also urges customers to stop using the affected chests of drawers and put them out of the reach of children until the furniture can be secured to a wall.
Customers who cannot secure the furniture to a wall are advised to bring the pieces back to any Ikea location for a refund.
Chests and dressers manufactured between January 2002 and June 2016 are qualified for a full refund.
Furniture made before 2002 may be eligible for a partial store credit.
Ikea says the recall affects about half the models of chests that it has sold over the years.
But it adds all products currently in stores and for sale online do fully meet the current standard.
