Millions of IKEA dressers recalled after 3 children die

- IKEA is recalling a popular line of dressers after the furniture caused the deaths of three children.

The recall is for the MALM series of dressers, which have been shown to easily fall forward. The company said it has sold more than 27 million dressers.

Three children have been killed and dozens have been hurt in the last few years after the dressers fell forward and crushed them. 
IKEA is also offering free wall anchoring kits for the MALM 3, 4 and 6 drawer chests and dressers, all IKEA children’s chests and dressers taller than 23.5 inches and all adult chests and dressers taller than 29.5 inches.

Further details about the dresser recall haven't been released, but it's believed that consumers will be able to receive a full refund or store credit.
