Lea Industries is recalling approximately 500 Lea Covington and Hannah Collection Bunk Beds. The recalled bunk beds can be assembled incorrectly, creating a space that exceeds the 1.88 inches allowed by the industry standard, posing an entrapment hazard to young children.

The beds affected by this recall were sold in twin over twin and full over full sizes with accessories including a bookcase. The Covington Collection has a cherry finish and the Hannah Collection has a white finish. The Lea name and model information is printed on a label attached to the backside of the headboard on the bottom bunk and on the back of the bookcase.

The recalled bunk beds were sold at Furnitureland South and other furniture stores nationwide and online at the Hayneedle website from September 2011 through March 2014.

Consumers should immediately check to see if they have the recalled bunk beds and then contact Lea Industries to determine if the bed is misassembled. A professional installer can be dispatched to raise the position of the bottom bunk bed and install new brackets on the bookcase. Lea Industries is contacting known customers directly.

For additional information on this recall, contact Lea Industries at 888-770-7116.
