IKEA has recalled its junior beds, Kritter and Sniglar, for potential laceration hazards. The metal rod connecting the guard rail to the bed frame can break in use, posing a laceration hazard.
About 22,000 of the beds were sold in the U.S. and 18,000 in Canada.
The beds included in the recall are 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 and the Sniglar natural beech wood beds have a white painted fiberboard insert on the headboard and footboard of the bed.
There has been one report in the U.S. and one report in Canada of the rod on the beds breaking and no reports of injury.
The beds were sold at IKEA stores nationwide and online at www.ikea-usa.com between July 2005 and May 2013 and retailed between $60 and $90.
Customers should contact IKEA for a repair kit. (888) 966-4532 or online at www.ikea-usa.com.
