Furniture and Bedding Concepts Ltd (formerly Sleep City)—"JESSE" Bunk Beds

Identifying features

N/A

What are the defects?

The beds do not comply with the mandatory standard for bunk beds. The instructions are not explicit and the timber slats of the mattress base may not be fixed into position during assembly. As such, they may move and create entrapment spaces, which are prohibited by the standard. Variations in the manufacturing tolerances have resulted in some bunk beds having gaps in the upper bunk guardrail greater than the prescribed size. The corner posts of the upper bunk also extend greater than the prescribed amount.

What are the hazards?

Possible entrapment and strangulation hazard.

What should consumers do?

Immediately decouple the bunk bed so that the top bunk is on the floor.

Uinta Beds is contacting affected consumers and will provide a replacement bunk bed at no cost to the consumer. Replacement bunk beds will be available in approximately 8-10 weeks' time.
