Update: Angel Line Bunk Beds Recalled Due to Strangulation Hazard After 2-Year-Old Dies
Longwood Forest Products of Pennsville, New Jersey, is recalling nearly 40,000 Angel Line Bunk Beds with angled ladders after a 2-year-old boy from Columbus, Ohio died in May 2018 after he was found unresponsive in a gap in the bunk bed ladder.
"The metal hook fastening the ladder to the top bunk bed frame can move away or detach from the bed frame when the ladder is lifted and create a gap of more than 3.5 inches between the ladder step and bed frame," CPSC said. "Children can get entrapped in that gap and strangle to death."
The recall affects the following 3 models of Angel Line Bunk Beds:
|Model Name||Model Numbers|
|Fremont Twin over Twin Bunk Bed||71210-21, 71210-49 and 71210-67|
|Creston Twin over twin Bunk Bed||71230-21, 71230-49 and 71230-75|
|Brandon Twin over Full Bunk Bed||71420-21 and 71420-75|
The recalled bunk beds were sold online from March 2016 through June 2022 for between $180 to $330.
If you purchased a bunk bed that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately, block children’s access to the bunk beds and contact Angel Line for a free repair kit with brackets to reinforce the angled bunk bed ladders. Consumers should not use the recalled bunk beds until the repair kit has been installed.
This recall began on December 22, 2022.
What's the Problem?
Zinus Inc. is recalling about 26,000 metal bunk beds after the company received at least 13 reports of the bed welds coming apart and/or failing, resulting in multiple injuries.
According to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) , this recall affects the following models of Zinus metal bunk beds:
- Model OPLBB -- Black twin-over-twin bed whose bed posts have a square cross section.
- Model RPBB -- Blue twin-over-twin bed whose bed posts have a circular cross section.
- Model NTBB -- Gray twin-over-full bed whose bed posts have a circular cross section.
"The firm has received 13 reports of the bunk bed welds coming apart including three reports of multiple welds simultaneously failing," CPSC said. "Of the 13 reports received, three resulted in bumps and bruises after the consumer fell to the floor from the upper bunk when the welds failed."
All of the recalled bunk beds have ladders built into both the head and foot of the bed. The model number is printed on a label on the horizontal bar of the guard rail of the upper bunk.
The recalled bunk beds were sold online from December 2016 through January 2020 for between $90 and $240.
If you purchased a bunk bed that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact the firm for instructions on receiving a free repair kit with reinforcement brackets or a full refund.
This recall began on November 12, 2020.
Cabina Bunk Beds Recalled Over Fall Hazard
Casa Collection Design Group Inc. is recalling hundreds of Cabina Bunk Beds after the company received multiple reports of screws coming loose, causing the foundation of the bed to dislodge from the bed rail. "Consumers should immediately stop using their recalled Cabina Bunk Beds until they have inspected their beds to determine whether the screws that hold the bed’s foundation to the guardrails are tightly in place," CPSC said. "Casa Kids will immediately send a new set of screws to any consumers who alert Casa Kids that their bed’s guardrails are not tightly in place." This recall began on March 4, 2022.
