IKEA recalled the KRITTER and SNIGLAR junior beds due to potential "potential laceration hazard". According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, no injuries have been reported.
These recalled IKEA junior 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 and a date stamp of 1114 to 1322 representing the year and week of production (YYWW). The SNIGLAR natural beech wood beds have a white painted fiberboard insert on the headboard and footboard of the bed and a date stamp of 1114 to 1318. The beds measure approximately 65 inches long by 30 inches wide with a 22 to 26 inch high headboard. The date stamp appears on a label attached to either the headboard or the underside of the bed. Model numbers included in the recall are 600.904.70 for the KRITTER and 500.871.66 for the SNIGLAR, supplier number 15361 (KRITTER) and 19740 or 18157 (SNIGLAR) printed on the same label as the date stamp.
"The metal rod connecting the guard rail to the bed frame can break in use, posing a laceration hazard." IKEA is recommending that consumers immediately stop using the recalled KRITTER and SNIGLAR junior beds and contact IKEA to receive a free repair kit.
