Glideaway recalls 1,850 beds over lead in paint
Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, August 7, 2013
WASHINGTON — Glideaway is recalling about 1,850 of its Sleepharmony metal youth beds because the surface paint on the pink-colored models contains levels of lead that exceed the limits allowed by law, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
Consumers should immediately stop using the beds and contact Glideaway for instructions for exchanging the bed for a replacement or for a full refund, the CPSC said.
Consumers can contact St. Louis-based Glideaway at (800) 428-5222, ext. 265 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Central Time Monday through Thursday and between 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. CT on Fridays, or online at www.glideaway.com/recall/.
The recall involves pink twin-size, metal beds with three pink heart-shaped designs on both the footboard and headboard. The beds come with an assortment of stickers that can be applied to the heart shape design. The model number is #MB-YPT-R1 and can be found on the box and the instruction sheet that came with the bed. The manufacture date code is located on a yellow label affixed to the inside of the metal side rail and appears as MFG: year/month/day. The recalled beds were manufactured between December of 2011 and May of 2013. Black and white models are not part of the recall.
Mattresses are not part of the recall, CPSC said.
The CPSC said there have been no reports of injuries related to the recalled beds, which were sold at furniture and other stores nationwide for $120 to $170. The beds were manufactured in China.
