The Conshohocken, Pennsylvania-based IKEA North America Services has announced the recall of SNIGLAR and KRITTER junior beds because of a possible laceration threat posed. 22,000 such items were previously recalled last summer, but this latest announcement adds 3,500 additional beds to the safety announcement. These products have a guard rail attached to the frame of the bed via a metal rod, but this rod could pose a safety hazard. It can break, and when that happens, children sleeping in the bed could experience a laceration. One small scratch has been reported in association with the latest recall, and owners should seek out repairs from the company so that scratches and more serious incidents do not happen in the future. The products were available across the country between July 2005 and last May.
