Two mattress lines recalled for failing to meet flammability standards
Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, December 14, 2012
WASHINGTON — Two lines of mattresses, one a foam core product imported from China and the other a rebuilt line, have been recalled because they fail to meet federal flammability standards, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Both failed to meet the federal open flame standard for fire resistance, posing a fire hazard to consumers, the agency said.
About 3,800 Classic by Easy-Rest Foam Core Mattresses, imported by Easy-Rest Inc. of Portland, Ore., were sold in stores from September 2011 to September 2012, the CPSC said. Consumers should contact the company to receive a free zippered mattress liner to be placed over the foam core and under the existing mattress cover, officials said.
The company can be contacted online at www.easyrestinc.com, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling collect at (602) 442-6609 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific time, Monday through Friday.
About 1,500 rebuilt mattresses from American Mattress Mfg. also are subject to recall. The products, sold from December 2010 to September 2011, have a yellow tag that reads, "American Mattress Mfg. Co., 1899 Metropolitan Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30315." Rebuilt mattresses with a federal tag, indicating they meet the federal mattress flammability standards, are not included in the recall.
Consumers should contact the company to have the mattresses picked up, rebuilt to be compliant with the federal flammability standards, and returned to the consumer. The company is online at www.americanmattressmfg.com, or can be called toll-free at (855) 628-6344 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern time, Monday through Friday.
The companies are voluntarily cooperating with the recalls, CPSC said. No injuries or incidents were reported.
