Zinus of Tracy, Calif., , is recalling about 26,000 Zinus metal bunk beds.
The welds that secure the upper bunk can come apart, causing the upper bunk to collapse, posing fall and injury hazards.
The firm has received 13 reports of the bunk bed welds coming apart including three reports of multiple welds simultaneously failing.
Of the 13 reports received, three resulted in bumps and bruises after the occupant fell to the floor.
This recall involves three models of Zinus’ metal bunk beds:
- The OPLBB model is a black twin-over-twin bed whose bed posts have a square cross section.
- The RPBB model is a blue twin-over-twin bed whose bed posts have a circular cross section.
- The NTBB model is a gray twin-over-full bed whose bed posts have a circular cross section.
All models have ladders built into both the head and foot of the bed. The model number is printed on a label on the horizontal bar of the guard rail of the upper bunk.
The bunk beds, manufactured in China, were sold online at www.amazon.com, www.walmart.com, www.wayfair.com, www.overstock.com, www.homedepot.com and www.zinus.com from December 2016, through January 2020, for between $90 and $240.
