Recall of the Week: Samuel Lawrence Furniture sleigh bed frames due to fall hazard

Sleigh Bed

By Rita R. Robison

Samuel Lawrence Furniture is expanding the recall of Full- and Twin-Size Bordeaux Collection Bed Frames, with about 2,400 being recalled in the United States and 100 in Canada. In June, the firm recalled about 18,400 king- and queen-size beds in the U.S. and 1,250 in Canada.

The hardware holding the headboard and footboard can loosen or detach, posing a fall hazard, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement.

The firm has received more than 100 reports of headboards or footboards detaching, including one report of a Florida man who injured his foot when a footboard came loose.

This recall includes Bordeaux Collection full- and twin-size sleigh beds with wooden headboards and footboards in a cherry finish.

Each bed also has two matching wooden side rails. "Bordeaux" and a model number are printed on a white label on the back of the headboard and footboard. Model numbers for the recalled beds are 8070-242 and 8070-243 for the full-size and 8070-232 and 8070-233 for the twin-size.

Manufactured in Malaysia, the beds were sold at furniture stores nationwide from August 2009 to April 2012. The cost was $300 to $400.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled beds and contact Samuel Lawrence Furniture to obtain a free repair kit, the company and commission advise.

For additional information, contact Samuel Lawrence Furniture at 888-572-9889 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the company’s website at www.slf-co.com.
