Manufacturer recalls hazardous bunk beds

Posted: Updated:

Lea Industries has recalled several collections of children's loft and bunk beds, because the side mattress support rails can break.

Twenty-two injuries have been reported since 2009.

An 11-year-old girl in Madison, WI, was placing a fitted sheet on the top bunk when the mattress and bed supports collapsed on top of her 6-year-old sister in the bed below.

The 6-year-old was treated for a head injury and a cut on her face.

The recall involves the side rails on 34 different Lea children's bed collections, including loft, bunk and panel styles in twin, full and queen sizes.

The beds were sold between August 2008 and March 2013.
