Fall Hazard Prompts Lea Industries to Recall 59,200 Kids' Beds
The High Point, North Carolina-based Lea Industries has announced the recall of 34 types of beds from the Lea children’s collection. Each of the affected models would have been sold online and across the country between August 2008 and this past March. At issue is the fact that breaking is a possibility in the side mattress support rails, and thus a person on the bed could fall. 22 instances of a break have been reported at this time, including one in which a bunk bed broke and fell onto a six year old girl, causing facial injuries. Owners of the estimated 59,200 beds available in the United States are being advised to disallow their kids from sleeping in the beds until new components can be obtained for free from Lea.
