The beds are called Kritter and Sniglar.
Kritter children's bed with production number stamps 1114 through 1322 and Sniglar beds numbered 1114 to 1318 are affected.
The recall, announced by Ikea on its national websites, concerned several countries: Belgium, Britain, China, Czech Republic, Ireland, Israel, Luxembourg, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand and Turkey.
"We've sold around 10,000 beds in Sweden, but have no figures on how many of them belong to the production batch that we're recalling," Ikea spokeswoman Anna Pilkrona Godden told the TT news agency.
To avoid children cutting themselves on the sharp edges, customers can either return the bed, exchange it at the store or pick up a free repair kit, Ikea said.
The recall comes a day after Ikea's new 2014 catalogue was released in Sweden.
