IKEA issued a statement to ABC saying "Our hearts go out to the affected family, and we offer our honest condolences during this most hard time".
Almost a year after furniture giant IKEA issued a major recall of its chests and dressers, another toddler was crushed to death by an unsecured IKEA dresser.
A California toddler died after a recalled Ikea dresser fell on top of him while he was napping.
An eighth child has been killed by an Ikea dresser that was recalled more than a year ago because of its propensity to tip over.
Nancy Cowles, executive director of the non-profit Kids In Danger, believes Ikea needs to be doing more to reach out to parents with these dressers.
Ikea argued, in an official statement, that they spread news of the recall to the best of their abilities, stating that they used social media, email campaigns, national news stories, and their website to inform their customers.More news: Penn State beats MI , 42-13

An eighth child has reportedly been crushed to death by an IKEA dresser that was recalled previous year, and the company is facing backlash for what several safety organizations are calling a "lackluster" effort to recall the product.
Mann's firm has already represented three families of toddlers who were killed when the now-recalled dressers fell on them.
All of the children killed have been 3 years old or younger, the CPSC said.
The safety agency said it had opened an investigation. "If a consumer is unable to bring the product back to the store, Ikea will arrange to pick it up at their home".
The child's family plans on suing IKEA for their child's death, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, as they were unaware of the dresser recall. Jaquelyn Collas, whose two-year-old son Collas was killed by a fallen MALM dresser in February 2014, is suing IKEA for failing to tell customers that their dressers are potentially risky for small children.
If consumers prefer to get the free anchoring kit, they may install it themselves or have Ikea provide a one-time, free in-home installation service, upon request.
Safety experts say parents should be careful to secure any dresser or television, and to only use dressers that can remain upright even when a 50-pound weight is hung on a drawer.
