Recall alert: Bunk beds with angled ladders recalled after 2-year-old’s death

The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a recall Wednesday of nearly 40,000 bunk beds that can pose a danger to children.

The beds, made by Angel Line of Laurel Springs, New Jersey, have angled ladders. The metal hook fastening the ladder to the top bunk bed frame can move or detach when the ladder is lifted, creating entrapment and strangulation hazards, according to the CPSC.
