A line of children's beds with defective mattress support rails and motorized shades with overheating batteries are among this week's recalled consumer products.
Here's a more detailed look:
DETAILS: Side rails for Lea panel, loft, and bunk beds. The beds have two side mattress support rails connecting the headboard to the footboard and slats or a Bunkie board to support the mattress. The date code, rail item number, and purchase order number are located on a white label on the inside of one of the side rails. Date codes between August 2008 and March 2013, shown as 8-2008 through 3-2013, are included in this recall. They were sold from August 2008 through March 2013. Platform beds made since 2010 are not included in this recall. Recalled bed names, item numbers, and purchase order numbers can be found at http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2013/Lea-Industries-Recalls-Childrens-Beds/
WHY: The bed's side mattress support rails can break, posing a fall hazard.
INCIDENTS: Twenty-two reports of incidents involving the recalled beds in the U.S. since 2009 and one in Canada. Two injuries were reported. In a 2009 incident in Madison, Wis., an 11-year-old girl was placing a fitted sheet on the top bunk when the child, mattress, and bed supports collapsed on her 6-year-old sister in the bed below. The 6 year old was treated at a hospital emergency department for a head injury involving a cut to her face.
HOW MANY: About 59,200 in the U.S. and 4,200 in Canada.

DETAILS: Insolroll solar powered and rechargeable motor roller shades. The recall includes Insolroll roller shades available with a solar powered motor (model (hash)IN-SOL-R) or rechargeable motor (model (hash)IN-RCG-R).

WHY: The motor has a built-in lithium battery that can overheat while being charged, posing a fire risk.
