Ikea recall child beds in frame break scare

IKEA is recalling two models of children's beds for repair after complaints from parents.

The store is concerned by reports that a metal rod in the bed frame could break.

The Swedish furniture chain said it is recalling certain batches of KRITTER beds because of "a laceration hazard".

The beds in question are stamped with manufacturing dates 1114-1322 and SNIGLAR beds labelled 1114-1318.

The labels can be found under or at the side of the bed.

Customers who bought these beds should contact customer service to get a free repair kit.

Ikea said it has received seven reports claiming the metal rod connecting the guardrail to the bed frame broke.

While it hasn't had any reports of injuries due to this, it said a broken rod could expose hazardous sharp metal edges.
