The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled four bed models sold by major retailers after receiving nearly 150 reports about them break, fall and cause injury.

Full-size and queen-size pull-down fold-up beds sold under the brand names Ivy Bronx, Orren Ellis, Stellar Home Furniture and Wade Logan are part of the Sept. 8 recall, according to the commission. They were sold online by Amazon, Walmart, Wayfair, AllModern, Cymax and Overstock from February 2014 to May 2022.

The CPSC said the products, which are installed in a wall and can fold up, pose “serious impact and crushing hazards” because they can break or detach from the wall. Authorities received 146 reports of falls or broken beds, and 62 of them involved broken bones, concussions, bruises, lacerations and other injuries.

All consumers should “immediately stop using” wall beds and contact Cyme Technology, Canada’s bed maker, for free inspection and repair. The company is contacting known buyers, according to the commission’s report, but consumers can also check if their bed is included in the recall with their receipt online or by contact the company.
