Recall Round-Up: March 6, 2020

This week we bring you two large scale recalls from major manufacturers. Both Toyota and IKEA have recalls this month that are expansions from previously announced recalls of products in the market. Read below for more details.

Toyota & Lexus

Toyota announced a major expansion to their January recall regarding fuel pump defects. In January, 700k vehicles across both the Toyota and Lexus brands were recalled for stalling expectantly.  Today, that recall is at 1.8 million. The models in question have a fuel pump failure that can stop the engine from operating. If this happens, the likelihood of a crash is high. If you drive the below mentioned vehicles, you will be notified in May regarding repair solutions.

IKEA Kullen Dresser

IKEA continues to recall dressers for tipping and entrapment hazards. If you have purchased a dresser from IKEA, you must anchor it to a wall. IKEA has provided anchor kits for previous recalls and this one is no exception. This ever growing list of recalled dressers now includes the Kullen 3-drawer. 820k unsafe dressers were sold in the United States with an additional 150k in Canada. If you purchased the Kullen dresser, or other similar dressers from IKEA, you should move the dresser to an area where children can not access it and contact IKEA for a complimentary anchor kit.

If you’ve been injured as a result of a recalled product, please contact us today. We also encourage anyone to visit the US Consumer Product Safety Commission and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration websites to file formal complaints about potential safety hazards.
