You may have seen these really cute children’s beds that looked like a pirate ship at Costco over the last couple of years. And if you bought one, you definitely want to be aware of the recall on them. The pirate boat bed, Item # 213792, was sold exclusively at Costco from January 2006 through January 2010 and is made by Bayside Furnishings. The recall stems from the headboard’s storage bin that poses a potential entrapment hazard to young children.
Bayside Furnishings is cooperating with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission and conducting a voluntary recall of all of the units sold through Costco; about 2,000 beds. The reason for the recall is that there has been a single report to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission of a 4 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. Bayside Furnishings is issuing repair kits that will allow you to permanently seal up the storage compartment. The repair kit will be shipped to you free of charge and includes: four screws, a jig to indicate where to place the screws, a drill bit to allow you to countersink the holes, and a touch-up pen to cover any white areas.
If you have further questions regarding this recall, or would like to order a repair kit contact Bayside Furnishings at 1.877.494.2536 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also view the full details of the recall on the US Consumer Product Safety Commissions website.
