Big Lots Bunk Bed Recall: Risk of Bed Collapsing

About 20,000 Big Lots bunk beds are being recalled due to defective supports which can crack or break, causing the bunk bed to collapse and potentially cause a personal injury for children or their parents.

The Big Lots bunk bed recall was announced on Wednesday by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), which indicated that bunk beds’ mattress support slats and side support rails have been found to be defective and could fail. At least 14 reports have been received involving cracking or breaking of the support slats, and at least four injuries have occurred.

The wooden bunk beds were sold at Big Lots stores throughout the United States between May 2008 and February 2009 for about $300. They contain a three step ladder, with model numbers WP-9108-1 or WP-9108-2 located on a sticker on the interior panel of the headboard or footboard of the bed.
