Having a newborn is one of the great gifts life has to offer. A new baby ready to discover the world. Parents ready to provide a safe environment. However, many products that companies sell to the public are dangerous and can cause serious personal injuries and even death to the innocent and helpless.
This past week, the world’s largest retailer IKEA recalled 29 million dressers. The Malm and other models of chests pose a serious hazard, and consumers were urged to anchor the items or return them, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday on its website. The dresser, it was reported had caused 6 deaths and had 82 incidents.
Sadly, the problem is not new. As is often the case, it is not until litigation is brought or serious injuries or death occur that a company chooses to recall and fix a product; often placing profits over safety.
