More than 60,000 children’s beds are being recalled! Lea Industries has recalled 34 different bed collections for fall hazards. The bed’s side mattress support rails can break, posing a fall hazard.
The recall loft, bunk and panel styles in twin, full and queen sizes. 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. You can see the full list at the CPSC site.
The beds were sold at Direct Buy stores and furniture stores nationwide, and online at Amazon.com and other websites from August 2008 through March 2013. They retailed for $400-$3,000.
There have been 22 reports of incidents involving the recalled beds in the U.S. since 2009 and one in Canada. 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.
