Children's Beds with Toy Chests Recalled

Date:
July 3, 2008
Category:
Kids Furniture
Company/Brand:
Bayside Furnishings
The Danger:
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.
Description:
This recall involves about 9,350 Bayside youth beds in two styles: 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 boat's "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.
Sold At:
Costco and furniture retail stores nationwide and Costco.com from January 2006 through May 2008 for between $700 and $1,400.
What To Do:
Immediately stop children from using the recalled toy chests -- using the rest of the bed is okay -- and contact the company for instructions on receiving a free repair kit with replacement lid supports. For additional information, contact Bayside at (877) 494-2536 anytime, or visit their Web site at www.baysidefurnishings.com to register online for the free repair kit.
