About 2,000 <"http://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/product_liability">“Pirates of the Caribbean” Twin Trundle Beds are being recalled by Bayside Furnishings, (a division of Whalen), of San Diego, California. The recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
The recall is being implemented to repair the “Pirates of the Caribbean” Twin Trundle Beds, which were sold at Costco. The bedâ€™s headboard has a storage bin that poses an entrapment hazard to young children. To date, CPSC received one report of a four-year-old boy whose head became entrapped in the opening of the storage bin. He sustained bruises on the back of his left and right ears.
This recall involves the Bayside Youth Bed: the Pirates of the Caribbean Twin Trundle Bed. The preassembled headboard has a brown wood base with decorative carvings, three open storage compartments, a storage bin, and a mast. The storage bin located in the headboard measures approximately 39 inches long, 6 1/2 inches wide, and 24 inches deep. The “Pirates of the Caribbean” trademark is embossed on a metal plate inside the headboard. The name and address of the manufacturer, model number, manufacture date, and the words “Made in China” are printed on a label affixed to the inside of the mattress frame side rails.
The recalled “Pirates of the Caribbean” Twin Trundle Beds, which were manufactured in China, were sold exclusively at Costco stores nationwide from January 2006 through January 2010 for between $700 and $1,400.
The CPSC is advising consumers to immediately stop using the headboard storage bin and contact the firm to receive a free repair kit that will permanently close the headboard storage bin. The repair kits will be mailed to consumers in approximately four to six weeks. Bayside can be reached toll-free at (877) 494-2536 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Pacific Time, or at the firm’s Website at www.baysidefurnishings.com.
