Longwood Forest Products of Pennsville, N.J., is recalling about 39,900 Angel Line bunk beds with angled ladders.
The metal hook fastening the ladder to the top bunk bed frame can move away or detach from the bed frame when the ladder is lifted, causing the gap between the ladder step and bed frame to open wider than 3.5 inches. This poses serious entrapment and strangulation hazards.
A two-year-old boy from Columbus, Ohio, died in May 2018, after he was found unresponsive in a gap in the bunk bed ladder.
The bunk beds, manufactured in Vietnam, were sold online at www.amazon.com, www.ojcommerce.com, www.walmart.com, and www.wayfair.com from March 2016, through June 2021, for between $180 to $330.
What to do
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bunk beds, block children’s access to them, and contact Angel Line to receive a free repair kit with reinforcement brackets for the ladder.
Consumers who paid for the bunk beds to be assembled when purchased will receive reimbursement for help with installing the repair kit if needed.
