Adult Portable Bed Handles Recalled Following 3 Deaths

May 20, 2014, 10:39 AM

WASHINGTON, D.C. -

About 113,000 adult portable bed handles used to help people get into and out of bed are being recalled following reports of three deaths.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the recall involves handles sold by Bed Handles Inc., of Blue Springs, Missouri.

The agency says the handles can shift out of place when attached to a bed without the use of the safety retention straps - creating a dangerous gap between the handle and the side of the mattress.

Bed Handles Inc. has more information on specific models included in the recall

CPSC says three women became trapped between the mattress and the handles, and died. One was an elderly woman at a Minnesota assisted living facility; another was at a Washington state managed-care facility. The third woman, in her 40s and disabled, died at an adult family home in Washington state.
