IKEA Recalls A Number of KRITTER and SNIGLAR Junior Beds Due To Laceration Hazard
By Ivar Lee, Vancouver personal injury lawyer and Partner at Paine Edmonds LLP
IKEA announced today that they are recalling a number of KRITTER and SNIGLAR junior beds due to a laceration hazard:
IKEA asks customers who have a KRITTER or SNIGLAR junior bed to immediately check the date stamp on the label attached to either the headboard or the
underside of the bed.
While there have been no reports of injury, IKEA has received seven reports of breakage of the metal rod connecting the guardrail to the bed frame.
A broken rod could expose sharp metal edges, presenting a laceration hazard.
Only KRITTER junior beds with date stamp (YYWW) from 1114 to 1322 and SNIGLAR junior beds with date stamp from 1114 to 1318 are affected. Customers
with an affected product are asked to visit their local IKEA store, Returns and Exchanges department to receive a free repair kit. Customers can
also contact IKEA toll-free at 1-800-661-9807 at their earliest opportunity to receive a repair kit free of charge.
