RECALL: "Pirates of the Caribbean" Twin Trundle Beds to Repair Due to Entrapment Hazard
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Bayside Furnishings today announced a voluntary recall of about 2,000 "Pirates of the Caribbean" Twin Trundle Beds because the headboard has a storage bin that poses an entrapment hazard to young children.
CPSC received one report of a 4 year-old boy whose head became entrapped in the opening of the storage bin. He sustained bruises on the back of his left and right ears.
This recall involves the Bayside youth bed: the Pirates of the Caribbean Twin Trundle Bed. The preassembled headboard has a brown wood base with decorative carvings, three open storage compartments, a storage bin and a mast. The storage bin located in the headboard, measures approximately 39 inches long, 6 1/2 inches wide and 24 inches deep. The "Pirates of the Caribbean" trademark is embossed on a metal plate inside the headboard. The name and address of the manufacturer, model number, manufacture date and "Made in China" is printed on a label affixed to the inside of the mattress frame side rails.
Consumers should immediately stop using the headboard storage bin and contact the firm toll-free at (877) 494-2536 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. PT or visit the firm's website at www.baysidefurnishings.com to receive a free repair kit that will permanently close the headboard storage bin. The repair kits will be mailed to consumers in approximately 4 to 6 weeks.Related Articles:
