WASHINGTON, Aug. 16 (UPI) -- Furniture retailer IKEA is recalling 40,000 Junior Beds due to metal rods that can break in use and pose a laceration hazard, U.S. regulators said.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a Thursday release that no injuries have been reported, but there have been two reports of metal rods breaking.

The recall involves bed models KRITTER and SNIGLAR. They have guard rails on one side.

The Kritter beds have animal cut-outs on the headboards and a date stamp of 1114 to 1322, the commission said.

They are made of pine wood.

The SNIGLAR model is made of beech wood. They have a white painted fiberboard insert on the headboards and foot boards with date stamps from 1114 to 1318.

The beds were sold at IKEA stores from July 2005 through May 2013 for between $60 and $90.

The company in the United States is based in Conshohocken, Pa. The beds were made in Poland, Bosnia Herzegovina and Romania.

Consumers were advised to contact IKEA to receive a free repair kit.

Consumers can call 888-966-4532 for information.
