Recall of Adult Portable Bed Handles – a message from Health Canada

Health Canada wishes to inform the public about a recall of adult portable bed handles from Bed Handles Inc., involving the Original Bedside Assistant® (BA10W), the Travel Handles™ (BA11W) which is sold as a set of two bed handles, and the Adjustable Bedside Assistant® (AJ1).

When attached to an adult’s bed without the use of safety retention straps, the handle can shift out of place, creating a dangerous gap between the bed handle and the side of the mattress. This poses a serious risk of entrapment, strangulation and death.

Neither Bed Handles Inc. nor Health Canada has received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of these products in Canada. There have been 4 deaths reported in the United States.
