Pottery Barn Kids has issued a safety recall of the Madeline Canopy bed. A notice on the retailer’s website says, “The connections of the posts to the top rails of the canopy can come apart and allow components of the canopy to fall, posing an impact hazard to consumers.” The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said the connections of the posts to the top rails of the canopy can come apart, allowing components of the canopy to fall and posing an impact hazard to consumers.
There have been 33 reports of components of the canopy falling, including one report of a cut that required stitches and nine other reports of minor cuts, bruises and/or bumps. About 7,700 of the beds were sold in the United States and 230 were sold in Canada from December 2003 until August 2011. People who purchased the bed should remove the canopy and contact Pottery Barn Kids to schedule a free repair. The company can be reached toll-free at 855-662-4114 from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. CST daily.
