The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Wednesday a recall of nearly 40,000 bunk beds due to entrapment and strangulation hazards posed to children.
The CPSC said the beds with angled ladders, made by Angel Line, have a metal hook that fastens the ladder to the top of the bunk bed and can move away or become detached from the bed frame. That can create a gap between the ladder step and the frame.
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, according to the CPSC.
Three models of Angel Line bunk beds are included in the recall:
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 bunk beds were sold by Amazon, Walmart, OJCommerce and Wayfair.
Consumers are told to stop using the beds immediately and contact Angel Line to get a free repair kit.
