In 2007 we purchased a bunk bed (B442-59T from Ashley Furniture). Since we have a toddler in the house, we are currently using the bed as two twin beds instead of a bunk bed. Today when my son got in his bed the entire side rail broke off and the mattress collapsed to the floor. If we had been using the bed as a top bunk the way it is designed he would have fallen through the top bunk to the bed below or the floor. He would have been seriously injured or even killed!

A few weeks ago the slats broke and were repaired (the product is under warranty). We have contacted the company to let them know about the incident and to request a refund to purchase a new bed.

Comment from Ashley Furniture Industries, Inc. 7/10/2012
Ashley Furniture has received this report and conducted an investigation. Our investigation was limited to our own records and reports, as the consumer chose not to reveal their identity or location of purchase.

The bed in this report was manufactured in January of 2007. Production samples of this bed were third party tested, as well as internally tested, to the requirements of 16CFR 1213 and 16 CFR 1513 with passing results in all cases. We have no records or reports of similar concerns or complaints, nor do we have a record of any consumer communication on this item.

Ashley Furniture Industries discontinued this item on April 15, 2008.

This item was in the consumer’s home for over 5 years prior to the reported identification of a potential issue. As with all items intended for prolonged daily use, especially by children, a periodic inspection of the item’s condition, fasteners and assembly will assist in extending the safe and useful life.
