Sandra, my mother is an attorney and I showed her this and it sounds like it is a safety hazard and you do have any lawsuit on your hands. It's a liability issue also. So please contact an attorney and go forward with your issues about the bed frame

I purchased one of the defective frames on September 9, 2020. When I was notified of the recall I asked for a refund because I have no other bed and I don't trust the repair kit solution to make the frame safe. The store representative refused and would not even send anyone to help me install the brackets.
