WASHINGTON – Hooker Furniture Corp. of Martinsville, VA, has issued a voluntary recall for approximately 1,300 bunk beds.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the bunks beds have gaps between parts of the upper bunk that could allow a child’s body to pass through but not a child’s head. The CPSC said this poses an entrapment or strangulation hazard to children and exceeds the space allowed by the federal bunk bed safety standard. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

The beds were made in Malaysia and Vietnam and sold through retailers nationally from August 2005 through August 2007 for about $1,000. Consumer are urged to discontinue allowing their children to use the recalled bunk beds and contact the retailer where purchased to schedule a free, in-home repair.
