IKEA recalls for repair a number of KRITTER and SNIGLAR junior beds due to laceration hazard
IKEA kindly asks customers who have a KRITTER or SNIGLAR junior bed to immediately check the date stamp on the label attached to either the headboard or the underside of the bed.
IKEA has received seven reports of breakage of the metal rod connecting the guardrail to the bed frame. A broken rod could expose sharp metal edges, presenting a laceration hazard. No reports of any injuries caused by breakage of the metal rod have been reported.
