BeyondMedShop of Stafford, Texas, is recalling about 102,000 Vaunn Medical Bed Assist Rail adult bed rails.
When the bed rails are attached to an adult’s bed, users can become trapped within the bed rail or between the bed rail and the side of the mattress, posing a serious risk of death by asphyxiation.
No incidents or injuries are reported.
This recall involves two models of Vaunn Medical Bed Assist Rail adult bed rails: M876N-AAWH-APVM and M876N-SABK-APVM.
Model M876N-AAWH-APVM is a rectangular bed rail made of white metal tubing with a black foam rubber grip handle.
Model 876N-SABK-APVM is made of black metal tubing with a rounded black foam rubber grip handle and a fabric pouch.
The model number is printed on the weight capacity label located on the grip handle.
The bed rails, manufactured in China, were sold online at BeyondMedShop.com, Amazon com, Walmart.com and eBay from December 2018, through December 2022, for between $40 and $80.
What to do
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bed rails and contact BeyondMedShop for a free repair.
The firm expects the remedy to be available in May 2023.
