Over 100,000 units of removable bed handles sold in the U.S. were recalled after three women died from using the device, the Kansas City Star reported on May 20.
Reports said nearly 113,000 portable bed handles manufactured by Bed Handles Inc. were recalled due to a possible malfunction. The handle may suddenly become disjointed from the bed, creating a gap that the elderly or disabled users may become trapped in. Three women died due to this very situation. People who own these bed handles will be given free straps by the company, so the mechanism will be safely secured to the bed.
