A popular model of inflatable air mattress is being urgently recalled by the manufacturer after consumers reported waking the next morning after a quality sleep to find the beds had failed to correctly deflate overnight.
The beds, which are available from a number of Australian retailers, are identifiable by their distinctive blue colour and their inability to fit back into the box they came out of.
Importer Eastern Gamble Distributors said that while the problem had been quickly identified, several thousand units had already been sold.
“As soon as we started receiving reports about the non-defective products we urgently contacted the manufacturer,” said CEO James Andrew.
“The problem was traced to a correctly functioning ultrasonic welding horn which was immediately replaced. We urge all purchasers to immediately return the product to the point of purchase for a full refund. Under no circumstances should consumers attempt to use the beds as it could ruin the entire camping experience”.
