Bunk Beds Recalled Due To Fall Hazard

DETROIT (WWJ) – A North Carolina-based company is announcing a nationwide recall of their wooden bunk beds due to a fall hazard.

American Woodcrafters said guard rails on the upper bunks of their wood twin bunk beds and loft bunk beds can crack and cause the mattress and its support rails to collapse, posing a fall hazard.

The firm has received two reports of cracked guard rails causing the mattresses and support rails to collapse, but no injuries were reported.

The beds were sold at furniture dealers nationwide from October 2010 to June 2011 for between $600 and $1,000.

The beds have a permanent label attached to the headboard or the footboard with the American Woodcrafters logo; SKU numbers, 1800-977 or 1800-969; PO numbers: 103276, 103432, or 300038; and the manufacturing date.

Consumers should immediately stop using the upper beds and contact American Woodcrafters or their furniture dealer to arrange for the free replacement of upper bunk guard rails.
