IKEA Korea Halts Sale of 15 More Dressers

Swedish furniture group IKEA has halted sales of 15 more dressers sold in South Korea over possible safety concerns.

In a news conference Thursday, IKEA Korea Retail Manager Andre Schmidtgall said that as of Tuesday, they stopped sales of the products that did not meet the Korean government's preliminary safety standards, adding the decision was reached based on internal safety tests. 

So far, IKEA Korea has halted the sale of a total of 30 dressers. On September ninth, the furniture manufacturer stopped selling 15 products following a recall request by the Korean Agency for Technology and Standards.

The agency said the products in question could topple over and crush children if they are not fixed to the wall with screws.

IKEA has recalled dressers in North America after reports of related deaths.
