Angel Line of Laurel Springs, New Jersey announced a recall of approximately 39,900 bunk beds with angled ladders due to serious entrapment and strangulation hazards to children. In May 2018, a two-year-old boy from Columbus, Ohio was found unresponsive in a gap in the bunk bed ladder, and he ultimately died from his injuries. The metal hook fastening the angled ladder to the top of the bunk bed can move and detach from the bed frame when the ladder is lifted, creating a gap of more than 3.5 inches between the ladder step and bed frame.
Three (3) models of Angel Line Bunk Beds are affected by this recall: the Fremont Twin Over Twin Bunk Bed (Model Nos. 71210-21, 71210-49, and 71210-67), Creston Twin Over Twin Bunk Bed (Model Nos. 71230-21, 71230-49 and 71230-75) and Brandon Twin Over Full Bunk Bed (71420-21 and 71420-75). Customers can find the model number of their bunk bed printed on a label on the headboard/footboard of the upper bunk. The recalled bunk beds were sold online at Amazon, OJCommerce, Walmart, and Wayfair from March 2016 through June 2021 for between $180 to $330.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Angel Line have stated that consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bunk beds, block children’s access to the bunk beds and contact Angel Line for a free repair kit with reinforcement brackets for the ladder. Consumers should not use the recalled bunk beds until the repair kid has been installed.
