A number of bunk beds have been recalled over fears they may collapse resulting in a serious injury or death.
The ACCC issued the recall over seven models from Melbourne-based retailer Fitting Furniture on Tuesday.
There are concerns the plastic brackets holding the bunk beds together may crack or break if over-tightened, or if repeated jumping on or climbing over the sides of the bed occurs.
The affected Fitting Furniture bunk beds:
Bunk Bed Compact Mini Low Height - Innovative Design!
Bunk Bed Mid Height with Built In Bookshelf
Bunk Bed with Built In Bookshelf & Optional Trundle or Drawers
Cubby House Bunk Bed with Open Shelves
High Loft Bed with Open Shelves & Optional 2 Drawer Desk
Triple Bunk Bed - Single Over Double Bed plus Optional Trundle
Triple Transverse Bunk Bed - Three Single Beds in One
The beds were available for sale from February 22, 2016, to May 30, 2019.
Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the bunk bed and contact Fitting Furniture to receive a free of charge set of upgraded replacement metal brackets, including a new set of fixing screws and covers.
Each set will come with instructions for the replacement of the current brackets with the upgraded metal brackets.
Fitting Furniture is a manufacturing company located in the south eastern Melbourne suburbs, they sell products online and with other retailers.
Further information can be found on the ACCC website.
