Bed Rails Recalled by Dream on Me for Suffocation, Strangulation Risk
Kids’ bed rails from the South Plainfield, New Jersey-based Dream on Me are being recalled. These pink or blue items could become detached from the mattress they’re affixed to. This could potentially lead any kid placed on the mattress to slide into the space between the mattress and the rail. A child in such a predicament could experience strangulation or suffocation, and thus the recall has been initiated. No injuries have been reported in conjunction with the 900 or so recalled products, which were available at various independent retailers and Amazon between September of last year and May of this year. The rails should not be used, and a refund can be obtained from the company.
