IKEA Expands Recall of Junior Beds that Pose Laceration Hazard
IKEA is expanding a previous recall of its KRITTER and SNIGLAR junior beds. The metal rod connecting the guard rail to the bed frame can break in use, posing a laceration hazard.
Approximately 3,500 beds are affected by this expanded recall. 22,000 KRITTER and SNIGLAR beds were recalled in August 2013.
The recall includes IKEA KRITTER and SNIGLAR bed models with a guard rail on one side. The pine wood KRITTER beds have animal cut-outs, such as a dog and cat on the headboard. A label on the headboard or underside of the KRITTER bed will have a date stamp ranging from 1049 to 1322, a model number of 600.904.70, and a supplier number of 19740. The SNIGLAR natural beech wood beds have a white painted fiberboard insert on the headboard and footboard of the bed. A label on the headboard or underside of the SNIGLAR bed will have a date stamp ranging from 1114 to 1318, a model number of 500.871.66, and a supplier number of 18157.
The recalled beds were sold at IKEA stores nationwide and online from July 2005 through May 2013.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled KRITTER and SNIGLAR junior beds and contact IKEA to receive a free repair kit.
