About 15,000 <"http://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/product_liability">Mattress Sets (Mattresses and Mattresses with Foundations) manufactured by Tropical Bedding Mfg., of Caguas, Puerto Rico, have been recalled, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) just announced.
The Mattress Sets fail to meet the mandatory federal open flame standard and pose a fire hazard to consumers. To date, no incidents or injuries have been reported.
This recall involves crib and bunkie mattresses and mattress sets (mattresses and mattresses with foundations) in sizes twin, full, queen, and king. The crib and bunkie mattresses do not have any labels. The other mattresses have â€œClassics,â€ â€œClassics II,â€ â€œImagine,â€ â€œSweet Mysteries,â€ â€œTreasures,â€ or â€œComfort Dreamâ€ printed on a label located at the top of the foot of the mattress.
The â€œClassicsâ€ model manufactured between August 2008 and April 2009 is not included in this recall. This model has a federal label attached that includes the date of manufacture and â€œClassics.â€
The recalled Mattress Sets, which were manufactured in Puerto Rico, were sold at City Mattress and furniture stores in Puerto Rico from July 2007 through September 2009 for between $30 and $135.
The CPSC is advising consumers to stop using the recalled Mattress Sets immediately and return them to Tropical Bedding Mfg. for a refund. For additional information, Carmen Martinez, of Tropical Bedding, can be reached at (787) 586-1139 between 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
