CPSC Warns the Public About Mobility Transfer Systems and Metal Tubing USA Bed Rail Recall


June 13, 2022

According to an online news report published on hme-business.com, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a warning to consumers concerning 285,000 adult portable bed rails manufactured by Metal Tubing U.S.A. Inc. and Mobility Transfer Systems. The bed rails were recalled because they can create an entrapment hazard that poses a threat of death or serious injury to users.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission's warning involved to ten models of adult bed rails manufactured by and sold by Metal Tubing U.S.A. Inc. from 2021 and 2022 and Mobility Transfer Systems sold from 1992 to 2021. The CPSC is advising consumers to stop using the bed rails, disassemble the rails, and then dispose of the following adult bed rail models:

  • 30-Inch Security Bed Rail, single-sided (model 5075)
  • 30-Inch Security Bed Rail – Extra Tall, single-sided (model 5075T)
  • 30-Inch Security Bed Rail, double-sided (model 5085)
  • 30-Inch Security Bed Rail – Extra Tall, double-sided (model 5085T)
  • Freedom Grip (model 501)
  • Freedom Grip Plus (model 502)
  • Freedom Grip Travel (model 505)
  • Reversible Slant Rail (model 600)
  • Transfer Handle (model 2025)
  • Easy Adjustable (model 2500)

The product's name, Mobility Transfer Systems, and its model number are printed on a label on the bed rails' grip handle.

The CPSC assessed the bed rails and discovered that consumers could become trapped between the mattress and bed rail or within parts of the bed rail itself, causing asphyxia. Three people have tragically died after being entrapped in one of the bed rails models. The victims include a 78-year-old Michigan woman at an assisted living facility back in 2006, an 85-year-old Oklahoma man at an Oklahoma nursing home in 2007, and a 90-year-old disabled woman in California in 2013.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission also asks consumers to report any accidents related to the bed rails online at SaferProducts.gov.

The manufacturers have not agreed to recall these bed rails or offer a remedy. The CPSC is assessing possible action against the company in the matter. Asphyxia and entrapment dangers connected to the portable bed rails are ongoing. In April 2021, the CPSC warned consumers to stop using AJ1, BA10W and BA11W models manufactured by Bed Handles Inc. since they may create an entrapment danger and pose an asphyxia risk.
