The bedframe assembly kit did not include reinforcing brackets for installation on the corners of the frame, which could lead to the frame collapsing, posing an injury hazard.
This recall involves certain models of Zinus SmartBase Euro Slats metal mattress platform bed frames. The recalled bedframes have a black metal frame and measure 14 inches high and were sold in twin, full, queen and king sizes. The model codes OLB-MESB-T, OLB-MESB-F, OLB-MESB-Q and OLB-MESB-K can be found on purchase invoice or box; the last letter in each model code indicates the size.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled metal bed frames and contact Zinus to obtain a free repair kit consisting of reinforcing brackets to be installed on the corners of the base, an appropriate tool and hardware, and both printed and video instructions (available at www.zinus.com/requestkit).
The firm has received 14 reports of the bed frame collapsing including one report of an unspecified injury.
