The world’s largest furniture seller, IKEA, will be recalling 40,000 beds in the U.S. and Canada due to a defect that may cause a laceration injury, an August 16 report from Bloomberg stated.
The recall was prompted by the potential of a laceration occurring if the metal rod connecting the guard rail and bed frame of the Kritter and Sniglar children beds snapped. In a statement, IKEA said incidents had reached the company in which the rod was broken, but that no injuries had yet been reported.
Free repair kits including a metal rod replacement and instruction manual will be given to affected bed owners.
Although no one has been reportedly hurt by the recalled bed, the sad reality is that children are injured by defective products all too often.
