World Imports is recalling approximately 8,000 of its bunk beds for a safety violation. The company is sending out repair kits for the beds involved. The hazard is that the openings between the metal rails at the end structure are wider than allowed in the safety standard and pose a risk of entrapment or asphyxiation hazard.
According to the CPSC: “This recall involves a Twin-over-Twin model 341-33, and a Twin-over-Futon model 344-54 bunk beds. Both models have wooden corner posts in a dark finish with wrought iron end structures on the headboards and footboards. A label on the interior surface of the corner post has “DISTRIBUTOR: WORLD IMPORTS” and the model number printed on it.”
The beds were originally sold at: Independent juvenile and other furniture stores in the eastern United States between August 2009 to February 2012 for about $250 to $300.
