Nova Medical Products is recalling about 20,000 home bed rails.
When the bedrail is attached, users can become trapped 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 incidents or injuries are reported.
This recall involves Nova Medical Products Home Bed Rail (Model No. 6093) and Home Bed Rail with Legs (Model No. 6094).
The bed rails are made of white metal tubing with a black foam rubber grip handle and removable fabric cover.
The model number is printed on a label located on the grip handle and begins with BL6093 or BL6094.
The bed rails, manufactured in China, 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.
what to do
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 expects the remedy to be available beginning in March 2023.
Consumers may contact Nova Medical Products at (800) 557-6682 from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm (PT), Monday through Friday or online at www.novajoy.com/recall-info for more information.
