WASHINGTON, D.C. -- IKEA is recalling thousands of Junior Beds that could break.
The recall is for the KRITTER and SNIGLAR models with a guard rail on one side. The headboard will have animal cut-outs like a dog or cat. The beds are about 65 inches long by 30 inches wide with a 22 to 26 high headboard.
IKEA says the metal rod connecting the guard rail to the bed frame can break posing a laceration hazard. IKEA has received an additional report from the UK of a metal rod on a SNIGLAR bed that broke and caused a child to receive a small scratch.
The beds were sold from July 2005 through May 2013 for $60 - $90.
IKEA says your child should stop using the bed immediately and contact IKEA to receive a free repair kit.
