The company says the bed’s side mattress support rails can break, posing a fall hazard. There have been 22 reports of incidents involving the recalled beds, including two injuries, including a head injury sustained by a 6-year-old girl.

The recall affects about 59,000 beds in the United States and 4,200 in Canada. According to a release from the manufacturer, the recall involves the side rails on 34 Lea children’s bed collections. This includes loft, bunk and panel style beds in twin, full and Queen sizes. The beds have two side rails supporting the mattress and connecting the headboard to the footboard, as well as slats or a “Bunkie board” to support the mattress. The beds were sold in various wood finishes and paint colors.

The recalled beds were sold at Direct Buy stores and furniture stores nationwide, and online at Amazon.com and various other websites from August 2008 through March 2013 for between $400 and $3,000.

To identify a recalled bed, look for item numbers and purchase order number printed on a white label inside one of the side rails. Date codes between August 2008 and March 2013 are included in the recall. The date code is printed as 8-2008 through 3-2013.
