On June 8 the CPSC in conjunction with Bayside Furnishings, of San Diego, Calif., announced the voluntary recall of the company's "Pirates of the Caribbean" Twin Trundle Beds. Consumers are asked to stop using the product immediately, unless otherwise instructed. This product is under recall because the headboard has a storage bin that poses an entrapment hazard to young children. CPSC received one report of a 4 year-old boy whose head became entrapped in the opening of the storage bin.

The recalled beds are the Pirates of the Caribbean Twin Trundle Beds. The preassembled headboard has a brown wood base with decorative carvings, three open storage compartments, a storage bin and a mast. The storage bin located in the headboard, measures approximately 39 inches long, 6 1/2 inches wide and 24 inches deep. The "Pirates of the Caribbean" trademark is embossed on a metal plate inside the headboard. The name and address of the manufacturer, model number, manufacture date and "Made in China" is printed on a label affixed to the inside of the mattress frame side rails.

The beds were manufactured in China and sold exclusively at Costco stores nationwide from January 2006 through January 2010 for between $700 and $1,400.

Consumers are asked to immediately stop using the headboard storage bin and contact the firm to receive a free repair kit that will permanently close the headboard storage bin. The repair kits will be mailed to consumers in approximately 4 to 6 weeks. For additional information, consumers may call Bayside Furnishings toll-free at (877) 494-2536 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. PT, or visit the firm's website at www.baysidefurnishings.com.

CPSC is still interested in receiving incident or injury reports that are either directly related to this product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product. Please tell contact the CPSC by visiting https://www.cpsc.gov/cgibin/incident.aspx.
