Two children’s bed models sold at IKEA stores in the U.S. and Canada have been recalled after a defect was found that could potentially cause laceration injuries, an August 16 report from Bloomberg said.
At least 40,000 of the Kritter and Sniglar junior-sized beds were recalled due to a defective metal rod that may break and cause laceration wounds. In a statement, IKEA said that sharp edges of the metal rod are exposed when it snapped, which could cause users harm. No injuries were reported to IKEA prior to the recall.
Owners of the defective beds will be given repair kits with a metal rod replacement.
