Product Recall Sign

Recall of Dangerous Product Resulting in Three Deaths Reannounced

A company that manufactures portable bed handles has made a second announcing concerning the recall of bed handles that create a serious danger of entrapment and strangulation. Three women, including two elderly women and a 41-year old disabled woman, have died after becoming entrapped between a mattress and the bed handles. When the portable bed handles are utilized without safety retention straps, the handles can shift out of place and create a serious gap between the portable bed handles and the side of the mattress which creates a danger of entrapment, strangulation and death.

The recall impacts approximately 113,000 portable bed handles. Consumers who have the recalled portable bed handles that were not sold with safety retention straps should immediately discontinue use of the portable bed handles. According to the company that manufactures the portable bed handles, consumers will be provided with free safety retention straps, assembly and installation instructions and a warning label. The portable bed handles should only be used in conjunction with the safety retention straps attaching the portable bed handles to the bed frame to prevent a gap.

The portable bed handles were manufactured in the United States and sold nationwide in home health care stores, drug stores, medical equipment stores and home and health care catalogues. Most members of the public interact with a number of consumer products each day. When a consumer product is unsafe or is dangerous for consumers to use, serious and even fatal consequences can result. Because the legal process recognizes the potential vulnerability of consumers related to dangerous consumer products, products liability law seeks to protect consumers and ensure that they are compensated for damages when harmed.

Depending on the circumstances, victims harmed by a dangerous consumer product, and their families, may seek legal resources and have different options available to them. Protecting and helping consumers is the goal of products liability law resources and options.
