Attention, parents: IKEA has issued a voluntary recall of dressers, including the MALM series, as they pose a tipping hazard when not properly anchored to the wall.

The recall affects children’s chests and dressers taller than 23.5 inches and adult chests and dressers taller than 29.5 inches that do not meet the performance requirements. An unstable, unanchored dresser could tip over, causing injury or entrapment of children.

IKEA is offering free anchoring kits to repair the current pieces, or a full or partial refund.

Here are the MALM models being recalled:

The non-MALM list includes HEMNES, TARVIK, TALVA, STOCKHOLM, NARVIK, and over 90 others.
