Retailer Ikea has recalled about 820,000 Kullen model 3-drawer chests due to the tip-over and entrapment hazard they pose, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

These chests were sold exclusively at Ikea stores nationwide and online at from April 2005 to December 2019 for about $60.

The recalled chest is unstable if it is not anchored to the wall, posing tip-over and entrapment hazards that may result in death or serious injuries to children.

Ikea has received six reports of tip-over incidents involving Kullen 3-drawer chests that were not anchored to the wall, including one report involving a minor cut and one report involving minor cuts and bruises.

Additionally, Kullen 3-drawer chests imported after August 12, 2019 do not comply with the performance requirements of the updated version of the U.S. consensus standard (ASTM 2057-19).

Remedy: Refund; Repair

Consumers should immediately stop using the KULLEN 3-drawer chest if not properly anchored to the wall and place it into an area that children cannot access.

Consumers should contact IKEA for either a full refund or a free wall-attachment (anchor) kit.

Ikea will accept in-store returns or arrange for free pick up of the chests for a full refund.

Consumers can order a free wall-attachment (anchor) kit.  Consumers can install the anchor themselves or Ikea will provide a one-time, free in-home installation service, upon request.
