Wood Castle Furniture is recalling approximately 1,000 Riley Duo bunk beds. The openings between the guardrails on the recalled bunk beds can exceed 3 ½ inches in width, which is too wide and does not meet safety standards. This presents an entrapment hazard where a child could be seriously injured or become asphyxiated.

This recall involves Riley Duo model bunk beds with model number C 5702, E 5702 or M 5702. The Duo has a twin size mattress frame on top and a full size mattress frame on the bottom. The solid wood bunk bed was sold in cherry, eastern maple or pacific coast maple. A warning label on the end rail of the top bunk has model number '5702' and 'Duo Bunk' printed on it.

The Riley Duo bunk beds affected by this recall were sold at Dania Furniture and Room and Board Furniture stores nationwide and online from January 2008 through December 2011.

Consumers should immediately contact Wood Castle Furniture for a free repair. Either the consumer or a company representative can determine if the guardrails spacing is too wide. Consumers with young children should discontinue use of the bunk bed until the hazard has been remedied.
