Recall AlertIKEA Beds Recalled

I am a huge fan of IKEA, mostly because they sell inexpensive products and carry a wide variety of items that I can choose from.  However, if there are any other IKEA lovers out there, you should probably be cautious of their KRITTER and SNIGLAR Junior Beds.

IKEA has issued a recall of KRITTER and SNIGLAR Junior Beds. The recall is of about 22,000 in U.S. and 18,000 in Canada.  According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, “the metal rod connecting the guard rail to the bed frame can break in use, posing a laceration hazard.”
