Recall: Metal Futon Bunk Bed Recall
Unfortunately, this recall was prompted by a child entrapment death. Big Lots is voluntarily recalling approximately 30,000 metal futonbunk beds. Entrapment can occur when the metal futon is lowered from a seated to flat position, which is what happened to a 3 year old Iowa boy. Additionally, the space between the metal ladder and the futon mattress is too small, such that a child's body, but not head, may pass, causing an additional entrapment hazard. Recalled products include:
- Model Number:BFB1008 ; Sold in Big Lots stores: January 2009 to April 2010 for around $200
The recalled product has a twin mattress upper bunk, and folding futon bed lower bunk. Consumers should immediately stop using the product, and contact Big Lots for a repair kit, which includes a new ladder and other parts.
