IKEA has stopped selling one of its most-popular dressers and is set to recall millions more, according to reports.
The ‘Malm’ dresser, which has been linked to the deaths of three toddlers in the United States, will be recalled Tuesday, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
“We are announcing this recall today given the recent tragic death of a third child. It is clear that there are still unsecured products in customers’ homes, and we believe that taking further action is the right thing to do,” the company told CNN Money in a statement Monday.
There is no word on whether the recall will take effect in Canada where approximately six million Malm dressers have been sold.
Global News reached out to IKEA to confirm the recall, but the company declined to provide details, and said they would comment Tuesday.
However, the six-drawer Malm dresser no longer appears on the IKEA Canada website.

A two-year-old boy in West Chester, Pennsylvania, was fatally pinned against his bed in February 2014 after a Malm six-drawer chest fell on him, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and IKEA say, and a 23-month old boy from Snohomish, Washington, died after being trapped beneath a three-drawer Malm chest when it tipped over.
The company issued warnings in 2015 including a free kit to help consumers affix the furniture to a wall.
Then last February, another toddler from Minnesota was discovered beneath a Malm dresser, according to the Star Tribune.
