Today we have dishwashers that can start fires, infant motion seats that that can overheat, another hoverboard battery fire issue, a fire extinguisher that can come apart (and a death is associated with this recall), bicycles whose cranks can break, crossbows that can go off by themselves (which is never good in my book!) and IKEA is continually trying to get people to recognize that certain chests and dresser drawers pose tip-over threats! This one is for real - an 8th child fatality is related to this recall! PLEASE - Get with it, let friends know. If you've bought something from IKEA, you need to see the item at the bottom of this message.
