Children’s Loft and Bunk Beds Recalled As Mattress Support Rails Can Break

Check your children’s loft and bunk beds! Lea Industries and CPSC issued a recall including 59,200 beds in the U.S. and 4,200 in Canada. The beds were recalled after discovering that the bed’s side mattress support rails can break, posing a fall hazard.  There have been 22 reports of incidents involving the recalled beds in the U.S. since 2009 and one in Canada, with two injuries reported. In a 2009 incident in Madison, Wisconsin, an 11-year-old girl was placing a fitted sheet on the top bunk when the child, mattress and bed supports collapsed on her 6-year-old sister in the bed below. The 6 year old was treated at a hospital emergency department for a head injury involving a cut to her face.

This recall involves the side rails on 34 different Lea children’s bed collections, including loft, bunk and panel styles in twin, full and queen sizes.

The wooden beds were sold in various wood finishes and paint colors, including black or white. The beds have two side mattress support rails connecting the headboard to the footboard and slats or a Bunkie board to support the mattress. Item numbers and purchase order numbers included in this recall are listed below. The date code, rail item number and purchase order number are located on a white label on the inside of one of the side rails.  Date codes between August 2008 and March 2013, shown as 8-2008 through 3-2013, are included in this recall. Platform beds manufactured since 2010 are not included in this recall. Recalled bed names, item numbers and purchase order numbers include:
