The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently announced the recall of about 82,000 Global Home Imports HR Platform bed frames. The frames may collapse, posing a crush hazard that can result in severe injury or death.
Bed Tech Bed Frames Recalled for Collapsing Risk
At the time of the recall, Global Imports had received 100 reports of the HR platform frames collapsing. No injuries had been reported.
The recall affects HR Platform bed frames sold under the Bed Tech brand with the following model numbers:
The models consist of sizes Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and Cal King. The steel frames are black and have blue plastic clips. Each product should have a 14-digit serial number that begins with HR on an outside leg. The model number should also be printed on the outside leg with the serial number. The products were made in Vietnam and imported into the US by Global Home Imports, Inc., of Phoenix, Arizona.
The company advises consumers to stop using the frames immediately and contact Global Home Imports to receive a free repair kit with metal clips to strengthen the bed frame. The company will ship the kits directly to consumers free of charge. Allow 7-10 days for them to arrive.
For more information, consumers can call Global Home Imports toll-free at 888-550-4371 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. MT Monday through Friday, email them at firstname.lastname@example.org, or check their recall site online.
HOFISH Recalls Foam and Pocket Spring Mattresses
The CPSC also recently alerted the public to a recall of about 700 HOFISH 10-inch Hybrid Certi-PUR Certified Foam and Pocket Spring Mattresses. These were also made in Vietnam and were imported by HOFISH Inc., of Diamond Bar, California. They were sold exclusively on Amazon.com from September 2019 through January 2020 for about $190 and arrived compressed in a box.
The problem is that the mattresses failed to meet the mandatory federal flammability standard for mattresses, posing a fire hazard. The company has received no reports of incidents or injuries.
The recall involves those HOFISH mattresses sold in twin, twin XL, full, queen, and king sizes. They are 10-inch, single-sided mattresses with white knit ticking, a blue striped wave design, and diamond-shaped quilting on the top surface. The bottom panel has gray, non-woven ticking.
The mattresses should have a tag located on the underside of the head panel with “Made for HOFISH Inc.” printed on one side and “Prototype ID: HF19HY” printed on the other. Only mattresses of this particular prototype are included in this recall.
HOFISH has advised consumers to stop using the mattresses and contact the company to receive a free fitted cover to put on the mattress to bring it into compliance with the federal standard. Call toll-free at 888-731-2419 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. MT, Monday through Friday, email at email@example.com, or check the company’s recall site for more information.
