bed handle recall

U.S. (KXAN) — If you have a loved one in assisted living or at home care, this is a recall you should know about.

Bed Handles Inc. announced a recall of 113,000 portable adult bed handles after a fourth person has died.

When attached to an adult’s bed without the use of the safety retention straps, a handle can shift out of place creating a dangerous gap trapping the person.

The bed handles were sold from January 1994 through December 2007.
