If it seems like I just blogged about a recall involving Pottery Barn Kids, that's because I did. The company recently recalled more than 80,000 drop side cribs. Unfortunately we're receiving word of yet another recall involving a product from Pottery Barn Kids. On August 3, 2010, the company voluntarily recalled more than 405 bunk beds.
The problem centers around the same problem that the drop side cribs were recalled for. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says part of the bunk bed can actually create an entrapment hazard for little kids. Specifically, children, can actually get their necks caught in between the opening of the bed post and what can be described as decorative molding.
Consumers should know that the bunk beds were sold at Pottery Barn Kids stores as well as catalog and at www.potterybarnkids.com from July 2009 to March 2010 and retailed for about $1,400. The bunk beds were manufactured in Vietnam.
What should parents do?
Although no injuries have been reported it is recommended that consumers who purchased this type of bunk bed should stop using this child product immediately and contact Pottery Barn Kids to schedule installation of a free repair kit at (888) 779-8692 between 7 a.m. and midnight PT seven days a week.
