The US Consumer product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Health Canada, have announced that it will be recalling about 40,000 unit of Ikea’s Kritter and Sniglar beds meant for children.
The beds come with guard railings, as seen in these photos, with a metal rod that connects it to the frames. The railings can become a laceration hazard, according to a report. There has been one incident in both US and Canada about the rods breaking apart, but fortunately, there were no injuries.
The Kritter beds are for young children and come with animal cutouts for the headboard.
The Sniglar beds are for babies still sleeping in cribs, and come with fiberboard foot and headboard.
The Kritter and Sniglar beds were both sold in Ikea since 2005 until this year. Consumers who own such beds are encouraged to contact their government agencies to avail of repair kits for the bed, or be guided as to what to do with the recall process.
