According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, adjustable base supplier Customatic Adjustable Bedz, with headquarters in Natick, Massachusetts, has voluntarily recalled about 50,000 adjustable bed bases due to the risk of electric shock.
The bed’s side-mounted AC outlets can be incorrectly wired, posing an electric shock hazard to consumers. No injuries have been reported.
The CPSC web page lists 14 recalled models. Consumers can locate the model number on the metal frame near the foot of the bed.
The units were sold at Sleepy’s and other mattress stores nationwide from June 2012 through January 2017 for about $1,500.
Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the AC plug on the side of the bed, and contact the company to arrange for a free inspection and repair. Contact Customatic toll-free at 844-815-9023 from 9 a.m. through 9 p.m. Eastern time, Monday through Saturday, or online at CustomaticBeds.com and click on Recall Notice for more information.
