d-Scan Inc., in conjunction with the CPSC, is recalling about 500 Jubee Bunk Beds because the upper bunk may collapse on top of the lower bunk which could seriously injure or kill consumers.
The recalled bunk beds do not comply with federal safety standards and have wooden side slat supports that can separate from the bed frame causing the upper bunk to collapse. The firm is aware of seven incidents in which the upper bunk collapsed after the side slat supports separated from the bunk bed’s frame. No injuries have been reported.
The bunk bed are twin size and were designed for children. The bed does not come assembled and the consumer must put it together. The beds are made from maple wood and have a four-step ladder attached to one side of the bed; there are also three pullout drawers under the bottom bunk. Only model number 82008 is included in the recall.
The bunk beds were sold at at specialty furniture stores across the U.S. and on several websites from December 2004 to April 2006.
