Some 40,000 beds that were sold in the US and Canada have been recalled by Swedish furniture retailer IKEA due to a defect that can cause injuries, said in a report on Friday, August 16.
The models affected by the recall are the Kritter and Sniglar junior-sized beds that cost $89 and $59 in IKEA’s website. According to the recall, a metal that connects the bed frame and the guard rail may break and cause laceration injuries to the child due to sharp metal edges exposed when it is broken. Incidents where the metal rods have been broken were reported but there were no reports of injuries related to the defect. Owners of the concerned products will receive a newly improve metal replacement that comes with a repair kit and manual for free.
The repercussions of sustaining an injury due to defective products can be devastating. However, compensation may be sought from the negligent manufacturer, helping to alleviate some of these burdens.
