Nearly 40,000 Bunk Beds Recalled After Toddler's Death

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Nearly 40,000 bunk beds have been recalled due to potential entrapment and strangulation hazards.

Angel Line beds with angled ladders have a safety issue that can create a gap between the ladder step and the frame.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued the recall after a 2-year-old in Ohio got caught in a gap and died.

The beds included in the recall were sold by Amazon, Walmart and Wayfair.

Here are the following model names and numbers:

  • Fremont Twin Over Twin Bunk Bed
    • 71210-21, 71210-49 and 71210-67
  • Creston Twin Over Twin Bunk Bed
    • 71230-21, 71230-49 and 71230-75
  • Brandon Twin Over Full Bunk Bed
    • 71420-21 and 71420-75

Consumers should stop using the bunk beds immediately and contact Angel Line. The company said it will distribute free repair kits so the beds can be used safely.
