Land of Nod bunk beds recalled

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of Land of Nod Cottage Bunk Beds due to a falling hazard.

Missing screws can cause the vertical slats on the guardrail of the upper bunk to detach, presenting a danger to children climbing out of the upper berth, the Commission said.

About 750 of the bunk beds were imported from Brazil by Land of Nod of Northbrook, Ill., and sold for about $1,000 January 2006 through January 2009 in Illinois and Washington.

The beds were sold with either white or honey-colored finishes. They can be assembled as twin or bunk beds.

Consumers were advised to check the guardrails to make sure all screws have been installed. If not, consumers can contact Land of Nod for new screws free of charge.

Consumers can call 800-933-29904 for information.
