The dresser that reportedly killed Jozef was of the Malm family - before the child's death, 29 million of the same dressers in the same line were recalled for tipping over when not properly secured.

Jozef's tragic death was completely avoidable.

The groups said CSPC must make a greater effort, "to reach every home with an IKEA dresser, urging families to return any unsafe dresser for a refund, and providing incentives for consumers to remove such a dresser from their homes". It was only after Ted's death that IKEA agreed to a recall of Malm dressers as well as other furniture that contained similar safety and stability defects. However, it seems the recall didn't work because two more children have been killed.

However, according to a statement from the one of the family's lawyers, Alan M. Feldman of Philadelphia's Feldman Shepherd lawfim, the recalls were "poorly publicized by Ikea and ineffective in getting these defective and unstable dressers out of children's bedrooms".

"Our hearts go out to the affected family, and we offer our honest condolences during this most hard time", spokesperson Mona Astra Liss said.

And the US Consumer Product Safety Commission said it is investigating the incident.

According to a report by the CPSC, a child is injured every 24 minutes and one child dies every two weeks in the US due to furniture or TVs tipping over on them. "They are fine to use and no further action is required", Ikea said in a statement released at the time of the recall.

Apprentices from all over the United Kingdom were honoured at West Ham's football stadium - the former Olympic stadium in London. Five years ago, the royal trio set up the Coach Core program on the eve of the 2012 London Games.

Jozef is believed to be the first confirmed casualty since the product recall.

"Little kids are curious enough to pull out dressers and look for things and even climb, but they do not have the maturity or body strength to move a dresser on top of them", Feldman said.

"The true tragedy is there might be more of these in the future", Mann said. The Dudek's weren't aware that the dresser had been recalled by the furniture company.

The American Academy of Pediatrics, Consumers Union, Consumer Federation of America, Kids In Danger, the National Center for Health Research, Public Citizen, Shane's Foundation and U.S. PIRG issued a joint statement offering condolences to the families and calling for Ikea to do more to forcefully communicate the hazard to the public.

The company defended the 2016 recall and its efforts to publicize it, saying that it worked with US media outlets for coverage, launched a national advertising campaign and posted information about the recall prominently online and in its stores. "If a consumer is unable to bring the product back to the store, Ikea will arrange to pick it up at their home".

Participating consumers can receive a full or partial refund or a free wall-anchoring fix kit.

Safety standards for dressers are now optional.
