Recall: Pottery Barn Kids Madeline Bed Canopy—Impact hazard

    Consumer Reports News: December 28, 2011 12:38 PM

    Pottery Barn Kids has recalled about 7,700 canopies made for its Madeline Beds because components of the canopy can come apart and fall down, posing an impact hazard to anyone sleeping in the bed, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reported today.

    An additional 230 of the recalled canopy beds were sold in Canada.

    Pottery Barn Kids received 33 reports of components of the canopy falling, including one report of a cut that required stitches and nine other reports of minor cuts, bruises and bumps.

    The connections of the posts to the top rails of the canopy can come apart, allowing components of the canopy to fall and posing an impact hazard to consumers.

    The canopy is part of the Madeline Bedroom Collection. It is made of wood and consists of four posts that connect to the headboard and footboard of the bed and four rails that connect to the top portion of each post. It is available for twin, full, and queen-sized Madeline Beds, and comes in white, antique white, blade green, Sun Valley blade green, Sun Valley light green and Sun Valley espresso. Pottery Barn Kids previously sold the canopy separately as an option for the Madeline Bed.

    The recalled canopies were sold at Pottery Barn Kids stores nationwide, online at and through Pottery Barn Kids catalogs from December 2003 until August 2011. When sold separately, the canopy cost between $150 and $300.

    Consumers should immediately remove the canopy from the bed and contact Pottery Barn Kids to schedule a free repair. For more information and to schedule a repair, consumers can call Pottery Barn Kids at 855-662-4114 between 4 a.m. and 9 p.m. PT, or visit
