More than 580,000 beds sold at retailers including Walmart, Wayfair and Overstock.com have been recalled over reports that they break during use.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a recall notice posted Thursday that upholstered platform bed frames made by Home Design Inc. “can sag or collapse during use, posing fall and injury hazards to consumers.”
The Silver Lake, Ind.-based furniture wholesaler said it received 128 reports of the beds breaking, including 36 unspecified injuries.
The faulty beds were sold on Walmart, Wayfair and Overstock’s respective websites from July 2018 through November 2023 for between $100 and $300, according to the CPSC.
On Home Design Inc.’s website, the company urges consumers to “immediately stop using the recalled beds and contact Home Design Inc. for a free repair kit.”
Customers are asked to send Home Design “a photo of the bed or a copy of the proof of purchase” as well as “a photo of the law label on the back of the headrest.”
The labels containing the following part numbers are included in the recall, per CPSC’s notice:
- 80032 Tufted Upholstered Low Profile Standard Beds
- 80055 Tufted Upholstered Low Profile Standard Beds
- 80071 Tufted Upholstered Low Profile Platform Beds
- 80053 Tufted Upholstered Low Profile Platform Beds
- 80002, a gray, warm gray, or blue bed frame with standard supports requiring a box spring, available in twin, full, queen and king size
- 80032 is a gray or beige bed frame with standard supports requiring a box spring, available in twin, full, queen and king size

The part numbers can be found in the installation manual, on the packaging and the law label, Home Design said.
Once customers with affected beds receive their repair kits, there are PDF- and video-style instructions available on Home Design’s website.
Roughly 527,000 of the recalled beds were sold throughout the US, while about 56,000 are in Canada.
Representatives for Home Design did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.
