According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, mattress and sleep accessories producer Glideaway, based in St. Louis, has voluntarily recalled pink Sleepharmony metal youth beds because the surface paint of the beds contains levels of lead that exceed legal limits.
No incidents or injuries associated with the beds have been reported.
The recall includes about 1,850 twin-size metal beds with three pink heart-shaped designs on both the footboard and headboard. The model number is MB-YPT-R1 and can be found on the box and the instruction sheet that came with the bed. The recalled beds were manufactured between December 2011 and May 2013. The manufacture date code is located on a yellow label affixed to the inside of the metal side rail. Black and white models and the mattresses are not part of the recall.
The beds, which were manufactured in China, were sold at furniture and other retail stores nationwide from February 2012 to June 2013. They retailed from $120 to $170.
Consumers are advised to stop using the beds and to contact Glideaway for a replacement product or full refund.
