Nova Medical Products is recalling its adult bed rails due to serious entrapment and asphyxia hazards.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, when the bedrail is attached, users can become entrapped within the bed rail or between the bed rail and the side of the mattress. This poses a serious entrapment hazard and risk of death by asphyxiation.
No injuries have been reported.
The affected products were sold at AdaptHealth, San Diego Medical Supply, Bellevue Healthcare, CareLinc Medical Equipment & Supply and medical supply stores nationwide from January 2019 through November 2022 for between $55 and $80.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bed rails and contact Nova Medical Products for a free repair or replacement, depending on the model. Nova Medical Products expects the remedy to be available beginning in March 2023.
The company is offering to replace or repair 20,000 units.
