Lea Industries has recalled 34 different children’s bed collections, including loft, bunk and panel styles in twin, full and queen sizes
The recall involves the side rails of 59,200 beds sold in the U.S. and 4,200 beds sold in Canada. The wooden beds were sold in various wood finishes and paint colors, including black or white. The beds have two side mattress support rails connecting the headboard to the footboard and slats or a Bunkie board to support the mattress.
There have been 22 reports of incidents involving the recalled beds in the U.S. and one in Canada since 2009, according to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Two injuries were reported. In a 2009 incident in Madison, Wisconsin, an 11-year-old girl was placing a fitted sheet on the top bunk when the child, mattress and bed supports collapsed on her 6-year-old sister in the bed below. The 6-year-old was treated at a hospital emergency department for a head injury involving a cut to her face.
To see if your bed has been recalled, check the date code, rail item number and purchase order number located on a white label on the inside of one of the side rails. Date codes between August 2008 and March 2013, shown as 8-2008 through 3-2013, are included in this recall. Platform beds manufactured since 2010 are not included in this recall. Recalled bed names, item numbers and purchase order numbers are available on the CPSC Website.
