The deaths of at least three children prompted IKEA to issue a recall for at least 27 million dressers.

According to IKEA USA president Lars Peterson, the Malm dresser can easily topple over onto babies and kids.

“Please take them out of the room,” Peterson told NBC News.

Refunds will be offered to anyone who returns the dresser. IKEA also has free repair kits for customers who wish to affix the Malm dresser to the wall.

A child is killed by falling furniture about every two weeks, according to researchers.
