Metal Bunk Beds by Coaster Co Recalled

(May 13, 2004 - NEWSdial.com) The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the manufacturers named below, today announced voluntary recalls of the following consumer products. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
Name of product: Metal Twin/Twin and Twin/Full Bunk Beds

Units: 22,000

Manufacturer/Importer: Coaster Co. of America, Santa Fe Springs, Calif.

Hazard: A gap between the step of the built-in ladder and the top bunk allows enough room for a child’s body to slip through but will not allow for a child’s head to pass through. This poses a serious strangulation risk. Federal standards for bunk beds are designed to protect children against entrapment and strangulation.

Incidents/Injuries: None reported.

Description: The recall involves model 2008, 2056, 2256 and 2258 bunk beds. The metal bunk beds were sold in twin/twin and twin/full sizes. A Coaster Company of America label can be found on the bed frame of the top bunk. The enamel finishes come in blue, black, red, yellow, or white.

Sold at: Furniture stores nationwide sold the bunk beds from June 2000 through February 2004 for between $150 and $250.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should stop using the bunk beds immediately and call Coaster of America for a free repair kit.

Consumer Contact: For more information, consumers should call Coaster toll-free at (800) 282-9362 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s Web site at www.coastercompany.com.
