By Roberta Rampton and David Ljunggren OTTAWA (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama arrived in Ottawa on Wednesday to meet with his North American counterparts and all three leaders are set to push back against anti-free-trade sentiment that has shifted political debate in the United States and Europe. Obama, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, in their "Three Amigos" summit focused on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), are expected to stress the value of free trade as voters increasingly doubt the benefits of globalization. U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has vowed to renegotiate or scrap the 22-year-old trade agreement if he wins power in November's election, and the Ottawa summit could be the final harmonious one between the three countries if Trump wins the White House.
Swedish furniture company IKEA Group [IKEA.UL] is recalling almost 36 million chests and dressers in the United States and Canada but said the products linked to the deaths of six children are safe when anchored to walls as instructed. The recall covers six models of MALM chests or dressers manufactured from 2002 to 2016 and about 100 other families of chests or dressers that the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said could topple over if not anchored securely to walls, posing a threat to children. "It is simply too dangerous to have the recalled furniture in your home unanchored, especially if you have young children," CPSC Chairman Elliott Kaye said in a statement on Tuesday.
