Sleep Shop, 503-232-5222; Stoney Creek, Out of Business; and Wholesale Importers and Exporters, 213-563-3346.

Problem The bunk beds have openings on the top bunk that present a potential entrapment hazard to young children. The spaces can be large enough for a child’s body to pass through, but small enough to entrap the child’s head. Manufacturers and importers urge parents and care givers not to put children under the age of 6 on the top bunk. 
Distribution Various retailers.
