Dorel Asia Recalls about 445,000 Bunk Beds for repair.
The wooden side rails that run from the headboard to the footboard and hold the bunk bed's mattress in place can split and cause the bunk bed to collapse, posing a fall hazard to consumers.
11 models are included.
"Made in Vietnam" and the firm's phone number are printed on a white label located on one of the bunk bed rails.
Some of the labels include the name "Dorel Asia SRL."
They were sold at Walmart, Kmart and Target stores and online at www.walmart.com, www.kmart.com and www.target.com from September 2004 through September 2009 for about $190.
Consumers should immediately contact Dorel Asia to receive a free repair kit.
Until consumers obtain and install the repair kit, consumers should take down the bunk beds and only use them as separate twin beds.
