EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. — WRPI 12 announced that Tween Brands, in conjunction with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, issued a consumer recall of over 23,000 bed canopies with attached lights due to safety concerns.

Tween Brands learned of several dangers inherent in these products. One customer reportedly suffered a minor burn from an overheated canopy.
