Home goods and furniture retailer Ikea is recalling two models of bed for children because of the potential to hurt someone, the company announced.

If you have either the KRITTER or SNIGLAR junior bed you should stop using it immediately and check the label either on the headboard or on the underside to see if its part of the recall.

The company has gotten reports of the metal rod breaking at the attachment point to the bed side rail, exposing a sharp edge that could lacerate someone. There is one report of the rod breaking in the U.S. and one in Canada, but no reports of injuries at this time, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Only Kritter junior beds with date stamp from 1114 to 1322 and Sniglar junior beds with date stamp from 1114 to 1318 are affected.

If your bed is part of the recall, you should call Ikea at (888) 966-4532 to order a free repair kit, which contains a replacement metal rod, tools, and instruction sheet.

"IKEA apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause," the company said.
