IKEA announced that it’s expanding the recall of the KRITTER and SNIGLAR junior beds for possible laceration hazards. The metal rod connecting the guard rail to the bed frame can break in use, posing a laceration hazard.
Recalled IKEA junior beds include the KRITTER and SNIGLAR 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 has a date stamp of 1114 to 1322 representing the year and week of production (YYWW), a 600.904.70 model number, and 19740 supplier number. 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 has a date stamp of 1114 to 1318 (YYWW), a 500.871.66 model number, and 18157 supplier number. This recall expands the date stamp for SNIGLAR beds to 1049 to 1318. The beds measure about 65 inches long by 30 inches wide with a 22 to 26 inch high headboard.
IKEA is offering a free repair kit to customers and urge consumers to stop using the recalled beds until they receive the repair kit. You can contact IKEA at (888) 966-4532 or online at www.ikea-usa.com.
