Ikea Recall [...]

The company said it had also received reports of at least 41 cases of Malm chests and dressers tipping over, resulting in a total of six deaths and 17 injuries to children. In addition, it received 41 complaints about other models of chests and drawers that also claimed the lives of three children and injured 19 others.
One of those, in July 1989, involved a 20-month-old girl from Mt. Vernon, Va. who died after an unanchored GUTE four-drawer chest tipped over and pinned her against the footboard of a youth bed, the commission said in a statement.

“Every two weeks a child in the U.S. is killed in a tip-over related incident involving furniture or TVs,”  Elliot Kay, chairman of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, said in a statement. “These are tragic numbers.” (Source)
