The side rail can break, especially when a sharp downward force is applied to the top of the bed. If the side rail breaks, the mattress and slat pack become unstable and could fall.

The US CPSC is aware of twenty-two incidents with two injuries.
Approximately 4237 affected beds were sold in Canada at various retailers.
Approximately 59,188 affected beds were sold in the United States at various retailers.

What you should do
Consumers should stop using the beds. Consumers should lift up the mattress and write down the purchase order and item numbers listed on the label on the inside of one of the rails. They should input these numbers on the company’s website (under the Recall Tab at the bottom of the page) to verify if they have affected side rails. If they do, they will be prompted to register for the recall. Lea Industries will ship them free replacement side rails along with instructions on how to install them.
Consumers may view the release by the US CPSC on the Commission's website.
