Consumer product advisory

Health Canada warns that the Convertible House Bed Frames and Montessori Floor Beds by Zipadee Kids may pose a risk of entrapment and strangulation for children

Last updated

Summary

Product
Convertible House Bed Frames and Montessori Floor Beds by Zipadee Kids
Issue
Consumer products - Entrapment hazard
What to do

Immediately stop using the impacted beds and dispose of them.

Affected products

This alert involves the following products:

  • Montessori Floor bed by Zipadee Kids
  • Convertible House Bed Frame by Zipadee Kids

The beds were sold in twin, full, queen, and toddler size. The beds are all natural wood floor beds that can be raised or converted to adjust for a child’s sleeping needs as they grow and develop. The beds are intended for children 18 months and older.

Issue

Health Canada has been made aware that the spindles used on the recalled beds are spaced at a distance that creates a serious entrapment hazard that can lead to strangulation and/or death to children. The design of the bed allows a child’s torso to slip through the rail opening but will not allow their head to pass, posing entrapment and strangulation hazards that could result in death.

What you should do

Consumers who have these affected products should immediately stop using them and safely dispose of the items in such a way that they cannot be used again.

Regularly check the Healthy Canadians Recalls and Safety Alerts database for dangerous products and take action to remove items of concern.

Health Canada would like to remind consumers to report any health or safety incidents related to the use of these products or any other consumer product or cosmetic by filling out the Consumer Product Incident Report Form.
