Have you recently purchased a wall bed? If your answer is yes, a new recall should be on your radar.
The Canadian company Bestar along with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have announced that all wall beds sold between June 2014 through March 22 by Bestar have been recalled. The recall includes about 129,000 wall beds, with 53,000 attributed to sales in Canada. The beds were sold on Amazon, Wayfair, Costco, and Cymax.
What prompted the recall?
If you’re familiar with the Murphy bed, you know that these types of beds are meant to be stored up against or within a wall and attached. The recall cites “serious impact and crush hazards,” in the beds affected by the recall. In 2018, a 79-year-old woman died after a Bestar bed fell on her. An additional sixty reports of bruising and injury have been filed.
This Bestar recall includes the Nebula, PUR, Versatile, Edge, Cielo, Audrea, Lumina, Orion and Novello Full, and Queen Wall Beds that cost between $1,650 and $2,200.
