Ikea To Pay $50 Million In Tip-Over Deaths Of 3 Children

View all news posts

Ikea, the international furniture giant, has agreed to pay a total of $50 million to the families of three children in the U.S. who died as a result of its dressers tipping over on them.

In separate incidents in 2014, two toddlers died of injuries sustained when a dresser made by Ikea under its MALM line tipped over. In February, a 22-month-old boy was killed in a similar incident. That death came after the Stockholm-based company announced a repair program that included a free kit to anchor its furniture pieces to the wall. In the U.S., Ikea recalled about 8 million of its MALM dressers and chests in June and another 21 million other furniture models.

The three families had filed wrongful death lawsuits against Ikea. Among other things, they alleged that the company had failed to meet safety standards and refused to re-design its products to make them more stable and tip-resistant.
