The U.S. Consumer Safety Product Commission is recalling 8,200 Murphy beds after they were blamed for injuring 62 users.

According to the CSPC, there have been 146 reports of beds falling or breaking. The agency said the beds can detach or break from the wall, posing serious impact and crush hazards. The faulty beds caused broken bones, bruising, lacerations, concussions, and other injuries, the CSPC reported.

The beds were manufactured by Cyme Tech, Saint-Lambert-de-Lauzon, Quebec, Canada. See Cyme-Tech's recall notification.

The recall involves full-sized and queen-sized Murphy beds sold online under the brand names Ivy Bronx,  Orren Ellis, Stellar Home Furniture, and Wade Logan.

These wall beds are installed vertically and are sold in five colors: White, Rustic Gray, Espresso, Cinnamon, and Tuxedo. The models included in the recall are Low Profile Murphy wall bed part numbers S214 (Double Bed, Doors Installed Vertically), S215 (Queen Bed, Doors Installed Vertically), S234 (Double Bed, Doors Installed Horizontally), S235 (Queen Bed, Doors Installed Horizontally). 

Consumers can identify whether their Murphy bed is included in this recall by checking their original online receipt of purchase for the brand name and part number or by contacting the firm. 

The beds were sold online from 2014 through 2022 for between $1,200 and $1,500.

This was not the first time wall beds were recalled this year. Wall beds made by Bestar of Canada were also recalled by the CPSC earlier this year. The CPSC and Bestar, of Canada, recalled 129,000 wall beds due to serious impact and crushing hazards. In addition, Bestar sold about 53,000 in Canada.

In July 2018, a 79-year-old woman died after a Bestar wall bed fell on her, injuring her spine.  Bestar has received reports of 60 additional incidents resulting in bruising and other injuries from the wall beds detaching and hitting consumers. 

This recall involves the Nebula, PUR, Versatile, Edge, Cielo, Audrea, Lumina, Orion and Novello Full, and Queen Wall Beds.  The beds were sold online at Wayfair.com, Costco.com, Cymax.com, and Amazon.com. The beds were sold from June 2014 through March 2022 for between $1,650 and $2,200. The firm is contacting all known purchasers directly.
