To determine whether you have a recalled bed, contact the store where the bed was purchased. Anyone owning one of the listed recalled models will receive a free reinforcement kit or replacement of the bed.

To date, importers of metal bunk beds industry-wide have received over 500 complaints of defective bunk beds. CPSC has recalled approximately 317,000 metal bunk beds that present a similar hazard. Owners of all metal bunk beds should examine all eight mattress support corners of their beds for breaks or cracks in the paint or metal around the weld. IMMEDIATELY STOP USING DAMAGED OR BROKEN BEDS.
