CANTON (WWJ) – A popular furniture chain is recalling children’s beds because of a potential danger.
IKEA says it is recalling batches of KRITTER and SNIGLAR junior beds because the company has received reports of the medal rod breaking at the attachment point to the bedside rail.
While Ikea hasn’t had any reports of injuries due to this, a broken rod could expose hazardous sharp metal edges that present a possible laceration hazard.
Only KRITTER junior beds with date stamp (YYWW) from 1114 to 1322 and SNIGLAR junior beds with date stamp from 1114 to 1318 are affected. The date stamp appears on a label attached to either the headboard or the underside of the bed. Model number for KRITTER is 600.904.70 and for SNIGLAR 500.871.66, supplier number for KRITTER is 15361 and for SNIGLAR 19740 or 18157, are printed on the same label.
The beds were sold exclusively by IKEA, globally from 2005 to May 2013.
No other IKEA beds are affected by the recall.
Those who have purchased the beds are urged to check the tags and call IKEA’s customer service 888-966-4532 to receive a free repair kit. The repair kit contains a replacement metal rod, tools and instruction sheet.
