Bunk Bed Recall
NATIONWIDE RECALL (WOLO) — A toddler’s death has prompted a nationwide bunk bed recall. Retailer Big Lots is recalling 30,000 of its metal futon bunk beds. Safety officials say children can become entrapped when the futon is lowered to the flat position. That’s what happened to a 3-year-old Iowa boy whose head and neck became entrapped by the recalled bed back in March 2009. The recall involves model number BFB100 located on a label on the upper bunk support rail. The recalled metal futon bunk beds were sold exclusively at Big Lots stores nationwide from January 2009 through April 2010. Consumers should immediately stop using these bunk beds and contact Big Lots for a free repair kit.
