OTTAWA - A Pottery Barn Kids bed canopy is being recalled because the product could come apart and fall, posing a hazard to consumers.

Health Canada announced a joint recall with the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission and Williams Sonoma Inc. of the canopy. The item is part of the Madeline Bedroom Collection.

Health Canada says the connections of the posts to the top rails of the canopy can come apart. Williams-Sonoma has identified a total of 33 reports of canopy components falling.

One consumer reported a cut that required stitches, while nine others reported minor cuts, bruises and/or bumps. None of the incidents resulted in serious injury.

Health Canada has not received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of these products.

The canopy is made of wood and consists of four posts that connect to the headboard and footboard of the bed, along with four rails that connect to the top portion of each post.

The item 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.

About 230 units were sold in Canada, and 7,700 in the U.S. The recalled items were sold between December 2003 and August 2011.

Consumers are asked to remove the canopy from the bed immediately and contact Pottery Barn Kids to schedule a free repair.
