Aug. 17, 2012—PBteen, which is a division of Williams-Sonoma, recalled its Beadboard Bunk Beds because the panel could crack or break and could injure a user.
The recall involves wooden bunk beds that have beadboard panels.
The upper bunk, which is accessible by a four-step ladder, is designed for a twin-size mattress. The lower bunk is designed for a full-size mattress. The bunk beds were sold in chestnut (medium brown), dark espresso (dark brown), honey (light brown) and white, and have storage cubbies under the lower bunk. The product number is listed on the purchase receipt. A label that’s on each part of the bunk bed lists that part’s SKU. A list of affected SKUs can be found here.The front upper horizontal panel on the bunk beds could crack or break.
The company received 13 reports of panels that cracked, but no injuries were reported.
The product was sold at PBteen.com and through the PBteen catalog nationwide from January 2008 to April 2009 for the Sun Valley white and Sun Valley honey models, and October 2011 to February 2012 for the chestnut, dark espresso and white models. The bunk beds were sold for $1,700–$2,000.
Consumers should stop using the upper bunk immediately and contact PBteen. Consumers who have the recalled bunk bed will receive a free, in-home installation of a replacement panel.
