Big Lots is recalling around 30,000 futon bunk beds due to the recent death of a three-year old Iowa boy. The young boy died from compression asphyxiation while entrapped in one of the recalled bunk beds. Aside from this possibility, the CPSC is also warning that the amount of space between the rung on the ladder and the mattress is too small and that a child’s head could easily become trapped in that space. The futon bunk beds with model number BFB1008GE are being recalled and Big Lot’s asks that customers quit using the bunk beds or that they contact Big Lots for a repair kit.
