      Youth Bed Toy Chests Recalled after Child's Death

      LaJolla Boat Bed, Pirates of the Caribbean Twin Trundle Bed were sold at Costco

      July 3, 2008
      More than 9,000 youth bed toy chests sold at Costco are being recalled after a 22-month-old Roseville, California, child was strangled when the lid fell on his neck.

      The lid supports on the toy chests fail to prevent the lid from closing too quickly, posing an entrapment and strangulation hazard to young children.

      The California child was killed when the lid of the toy chest fell on the back of his head and entrapped his neck on the edge of the chest of a LaJolla Boat Bed, federal safety officials said.

      This recall involves two styles of Bayside youth beds: the LaJolla Boat Bed and the Pirates of the Caribbean Twin Trundle Bed. The preassembled toy chests are designed in the shape of a ship or boats bow and attached to the beds as a footboard. The LaJolla Boat Bed toy chest has a hardwood top and white wood base with a blue stripe. The Pirates Boat Bed toy chest has a hardwood top, wheel shape and brown wood base with decorative carvings.

      The beds were sold at Costco and furniture retail stores nationwide and Costco.com from January 2006 through May 2008 for between $700 and $1,400. They were made in China.

      Consumers should immediately stop children from using the recalled toy chests and contact the firm for instructions on receiving a free repair kit with replacement lid supports.

      For additional information, contact Bayside at (877) 494-2536 anytime, or visit the firms Web site at www.baysidefurnishings.com to register online for the free repair kit.

      The recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
