NEW YORK - Ikea is relaunching a recall of 29 million chests and dressers following the death of a seventh child.

Ikea CEO Lars Petersson said the company wants to increase awareness of the recall Tuesday for several types of chests and dressers that can easily tip over if not anchored to a wall.

The death of a California toddler, who was found trapped underneath an Ikea Malm dresser in May, has raised questions about whether Ikea has effectively spread the word about the recall, which was first announced in June 2016.

Petersson said the Swedish company has had a "really extensive communication" campaign through social media and its website. He said the company emailed 13 million people about the recall two months ago.
