I purchased a Platsa chested draw from IKEA and discovered what looks to be a defect as I was assembling the legs, as you see in the picture the threaded screw pushed through the bottom panel which is not meant to am sure so would I be in a position to return it because I really don’t see anything that am doing wrong here?

Chest of drawers?
Did you use a hex key or a cordless drill/screwgun?

I don't think it's a fault,
maybe you left the threaded screw too long.
Shorten it with a few more turns of the long slotted nut before engaging it in the socket .
Or you could try screwing the threaded bar into the socket first (finger tight only)
then fit the leg and tighten with the slotted nut
Wake me up when it's all over.

The fault is probably the wrong screw. Either OP used the wrong one or one that was too long was supplied.
