A furniture manufacturer has announced that it is recalling a product due to concerns over safety.
Hillsdale Furniture is recalling certain models of its Chadwick children's bunk beds. The bed's side mattress support rails can crack or break, posing a fall hazard.
About 20,000 beds are included in the recall.
The company has received about 650 reports of support rails cracking or breaking. Several incidents resulted in the collapse of the top or bottom bunk, resulting in some consumers falling. Reports include eight injuries that resulted in bruising, lacerations requiring stitches, and an upper arm fracture.
The bunk beds are wooden and sold in white (model 1030), mission oak (models 1245 and 1589) and in a twin over full combination. All models were available with the option of either: a storage drawer, a trundle, or nothing under the lower bunk. Hillsdale Furniture, Made in Vietnam, and the model number appear on a label affixed to the inside of the bed rail or foot board.
Customers could purchase these beds at Bob's Discount Furniture stores nationwide and online from August 2010 through July 2014 for about $400.
Owners should immediately stop using the bunk beds and contact Hillsdale Furniture to arrange for the free installation of replacement rails by Bob's Discount Furniture. Bob's Discount Furniture is contacting known customers directly.
