IKEA Expands Their Recall For Junior Beds
In August 2013, approximately 40,000 junior beds from IKEA were recalled for repair and today, the company expanded that same recall to include an additional 3,500 beds. The 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 beds were sold in IKEA stores nationwide and online at www.ikea-usa.com from July 2005 through May 2013 for between $60 and $90.
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.
Since their previous recall, IKEA received one additional report from the UK of a metal rod on a SNIGLAR bed breaking. A child received a small scratch to the arm from the broken metal rod.
If you own one of the KRITTER and SNIGLAR junior beds, it is recommended that you immediately stop using it and contact IKEA to receive a free repair kit.
