IKEA has issued an alert for about 22,000 units of their KRITTER and SNIGLAR Junior Beds because of a possible laceration risk due to the metal rod connecting the guard rail to the bed.
Two reports of such incidents have been made official. The railing can break and expose sharp metal edges, posing a dangerous risk to children sleeping snugly in their beds.
Affected beds are with date stamp (YYWW) from 1114 to 1322 and SNIGLAR junior beds with date stamp from 1114 to 1318.
They were sold in IKEA stores nationwide and online at www.ikea-usa.com from July 2005 through May 2013 for between $60 and $90.
These fun and tidy beds feature wooden animal shapes, like dogs and cats, on the headboard and measure about 65 inches long by 30 inches wide with a 22 to 26 inch high headboard.
The company is asking owners of the beds to stop using them immediately and contact the IKEA customer service line at (888) 966-4532 to receive a repair kit free of charge.
The repair kit has a replacement metal rod, tools and instructions to fix the problem area, making the bed safe for use again.
