IKEA Junior Bed Recall
IKEA has recently requested consumers who have a “KRITTER” or “SNIGLAR” junior bed to stop using the product due to the IKEA Junior Bed Recall. IKEA has asked consumers to immediately check their bed to see if it is an affected model. The recall was instated after IKEA received several reports from consumers concerning a hazard relating to the beds. These junior beds have a metal rod that becomes a potential hazard when unattached. When unattached the metal bar produces a sharp edge. This sharp edge becomes laceration hazard to children while asleep in the bed. Affected models can be identified by checking the product label and corresponding date stamp. Kritter junior beds with animal cut-outs on the headboard and date stamps marked 1114 to 1318 are affected models. Sniglar junior beds with a white painted fiberboard insert on the headboard and date stamps marked 1114 to 1318 are also affected models. The beds were sold nationwide in IKEA stores and on IKEA’s website from July 2005 to May 2013. The beds originally sold for a retail price of $60 to $90. It is estimated that about 22,000 of the imported IKEA beds were sold in North America. More information concerning the IKEA Junior Bed Recall and the specific models affected can be found at the press release located on IKEA’s website.
