From page B14 | June 08, 2014 |

A line of bunk beds that pose an entrapment risk to children if they are assembled incorrectly are among this week’s recalled consumer products. Others include crossbows that can fire arrows accidentally and electric sanders that could pose a fire hazard.

Here’s a more detailed look:

BUNK BEDS

DETAILS: Lea Covington and Hannah Collection bunk beds with bookcases. The beds were sold in twin over twin and full over full sizes with accessories including a bookcase. The Lea name and model information is printed on a label attached to the backside of the headboard on the bottom bunk and on the back of the bookcase. They were sold at Furnitureland South and other furniture stores nationwide and online at Hayneedle.com from September 2011 until March. Details on specific models can be found at http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/Recall-Alerts/2014/Lea-Industries-Recalls-Bunk-Beds-with-Bookcases/

WHY: The bunk bed can be assembled incorrectly, creating a space that exceeds the 1.88 inches allowed by the industry standard, posing an entrapment hazard to young children.

INCIDENTS: None reported.

HOW MANY: About 500.

The serial number is located on the underside of the rail directly behind the safety. Mission and the model name are printed on each limb. They were sold at archery and hunting sporting goods stores nationwide from May 2013 through April.

WHY: The crossbow can fire an arrow unexpectedly without the trigger being pulled, posing an injury hazard to the user and to bystanders.

They were sold from April 2013 through March.
