Murphy beds sold by several retailers including Amazon, Wayfair and Overstock are being recalled because they can become detached, posing serious dangers to consumers.

Four brands of Murphy beds -- a style of bed that stores vertically against the wall and can be pulled down to a normal bed position -- have been recalled as of Sept. 8 because they can “break or detach from the wall and fall onto those nearby, posing serious impact and crush hazards,” according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

About 8,200 of the recalled beds were sold online nationwide from a variety of retailers from February 2014 through May 2022, and cost between $1,200 and $1,500. The recall includes full-sized and queen-sized Murphy beds, which were sold in five colors: white, rustic gray, espresso, cinnamon and tuxedo.

Impacted brands include:

  • Ivy Bronx
  • Orren Ellis
  • Stellar Home Furniture
  • Wade Logan

Recalled beds were sold by the following stores:

  • Amazon
  • Wayfair
  • Overstock
  • Cymax
  • AllModern
  • Wal-Mart

The following models are included in the recall:

  • S214 -- double bed, doors installed vertically
  • S215 -- queen bed, doors installed vertically
  • S234 -- double bed, doors installed horizontally
  • S235 -- queen bed, doors installed horizontally
