The openings between the guardrails on the bunk bed can exceed 3 1/2 inches in width, which is too wide and does not meet safety standards. This presents an entrapment hazard where a child could be seriously injured or become asphyxiated. No injuries have been reported.
This recall includes about 1,000 Riley Duo model bunk beds with model number C 5702, E 5702 or M 5702. The Duo has a twin size mattress frame on top and a full size mattress frame on the bottom. The solid wood bunk bed was sold in cherry, eastern maple or pacific coast maple. A warning label on the end rail of the top bunk has model number "5702" and "Duo Bunk" printed on it.
