NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) - Swedish furniture chain IKEA is recalling two models of children’s beds for repair, citing complaints over a metal rod that can break and potentially cause harm.

IKEA said Thursday it is recalling batches of KRITTER beds stamped with manufacturing dates 1114-1322 and SNIGLAR beds labeled 1114-1318.

It said the labels can be found underneath or at the side of the bed. Customers who have bought beds made during these periods should contact customer service to get a free reparation kit.

IKEA said it has received seven reports claiming the metal rod connecting the guardrail to the bed frame broke. While it hasn’t had any reports of injuries due to this, it said a broken rod could expose hazardous sharp metal edges.

The company is offering a free repair kit to owners of the affected beds.
