Bestar Wall Bed Recall
In April 2022, the Canadian furniture company Bestar issued a recall for about 182,000 wall beds that were sold in the U.S. and Canada since 2014 due to a risk of severe injuries or death.
What is the Problem?
The recalled beds can detach from the wall and fall on people nearby, which poses a risk of severe crush injuries, entrapment, or death. Bestar warned that the beds can tip over unexpectedly if they are not assembled and installed correctly by a professional installer.
How Many People Have Been Injured?
In the U.S. and Canada, at least 69 people have been injured or killed by Bester wall beds, including 1 person who died. In July 2018, a 79-year-old woman died when a Bestar bed fell on top of her, injuring her spine.
In the U.S., there were 60 reports of people who suffered bruising and other injuries when a Bestar wall bed fell on them. In Canada, there were 15 reports of the wall beds detaching from the wall, and 8 reports of people who suffered injuries as of March 28, 2022, according to the Canadian recall notice.
