A recall has been issued for IKEA juniorbeds which may cause laceration. The beds were previously recalled in August 2013, followed by the recall of around 3,500 in January 2014.

The recalled IKEA junior beds include the KRITTER and SNIGLAR models which have a guard rail on one side. The pine wood KRITTER beds have animal cut­outs, such as a dog and cat on the headboard. A label on the headboard or underside of the KRITTER bed has a date stamp of 1114 to 1322 representing the year and week of production (YYWW). The SNIGLAR natural beechwood beds have a white painted fiberboard insert on the headboard and footboard of the bed. A label on the headboard or underside of the SNIGLAR bed has a date stamp of 1114 to 1318 (YYWW). This recall expands the date stamp for SNIGLAR beds to 1049 to 1318.

If you have either of the recalled beds you should immediately stop using them and contact IKEA to receive a free repair kit. The beds were sold exclusively at IKEA stores nationwide and online at www.ikea­usa.com from July 2005 through May 2013 for between $60 and $90.
