December 29, 2021 — Around 39,900 bunk beds have been recalled after a 2-year-old child strangled to death in a gap between the ladder and bed frame.
Angel Line voluntarily recalled 3 models of Angel Line Bunk Beds with Angled Ladders due to serious entrapment hazards, including:
- Fremont Twin over Twin Bunk Bed: Model Numbers 71210-21, 71210-49 and 71210-67
- Creston Twin over twin Bunk Bed: Model Numbers 71230-21, 71230-49 and 71230-75
- Brandon Twin over Full Bunk Bed: Model Numbers 71420-21 and 71420-75
The recall was issued after a 2-year-old boy from Columbus, Ohio died in May 2018 after he was found unresponsive in a gap in the bunk bed ladder.
The problem is that the metal hook fastening the ladder to the top of the bunk bed frame can move away or detach from the bed frame when the ladder is lifted. Children can get trapped in that gap and strangle to death.
Lifting the ladder can cause the gap between the ladder step and bed frame to open wider than 3.5 inches, posing a serious entrapment hazard to children and a violation of the federal standard for bunk beds.
The recalled bunk beds 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.
Angel Line is asking consumers to stop using the recalled bunk beds until the reinforcement brackets can be installed.
