Additional information:
The UK Trading Standards Institute (“TSI”) reports the recalled cot bed is converted from a cot to a Junior Bed, the two (2) security screws need to be removed to allow each of the upper and lower bed end sections to separate. If the Junior Bed is subsequently converted back to a cot (for a second, younger child, for example, or for a friend or relative’s child, as a hand-me-down), each of the security screws must be re-fitted.

AlbanyCotCreamAccording to the TSI, if the security screws are not re-fitted, it is possible to create a gap between the lower and upper Cot Bed end sections if the Cot is moved or lifted for any reason. This could cause the possibility of injury to parent or child. It is also possible that, in some cases, partial disassembly of the drop side mechanism could occur, rendering the Cot unsafe.

If the Cot Bed is converted to a sofa (another configuration option), as stated in the instructions, it is also important that each of the security screws is re-fitted otherwise a significant hazard could be created.
