The death of a 3-year-old boy from Burlington, Iowa, has prompted the recall of metal futon bunk beds that were sold at Big Lots stores nationwide from January 2009 through April 2010. Children can become trapped when the futon and its metal frame are lowered from the seated to the flat position.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission encourages consumers to contact Big Lots for a free repair kit.
