Ikea, the world’s largest furniture retailer, has recalled two models of junior beds in the U.S. and Canada on concern they can break and cause laceration injuries. The recall of Kritter and Sniglar beds follows reports of incidents where a metal rod that connects the guard rail to the bed frame has snapped, the Swedish company said in a statement. Ikea said: “this can result in partial detachment of the guard rail and exposed sharp metal edges that present a laceration hazard.”
No injuries have been reported, according to the retailer, which sells the beds on its U.S. website for $89 and $59, respectively. Owners of the faulty products will receive a free repair kit containing a replacement metal rod, tools and instruction sheet, Ikea said in the statement. The recall concerns 22,000 beds in the U.S. and 18,000 in Canada. The products were made in Poland, Bosnia Herzegovina and Romania, according to Ikea.
