New York, N.Y.—IKEA, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada has voluntarily recalled KRITTER and SNIGLAR Junior Beds due to laceration risks. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on January 29, 2014.
The junior beds by IKEA were recalled after discovering that metal bar that connects the guard rail to the frame can break, which can result in laceration hazards.
“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,” the CPSC reported.
