The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a recall of 121,000 twin-over-twin bunk beds, stating that the wooden slats supporting the beds can break while in use. 

The beds were made by Walker Edison Furniture. The company has received 14 reports of the bunk beds' slats breaking. One of the incidents resulted in a minor injury. 

All models of recalled beds have a ladder down the side. The model name is printed on a label on the inside of the bed rail or footboard, the CPSC said. 

A full list of recalled model numbers is available online. 

Owners of recalled beds can contact Walker Edison Furniture for a free repair kit, the CPSC said.
