Mattresses Recalled for Posing Fire Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Dallas-based Mattress World, announced a voluntary recall of about 750 mattress sets, which the commission say fail to meet the mandatory federal open flame standard, posing a fire hazard. CPSC said consumers should immediately contact the company to receive a full refund and meanwhile stop using the specific products recalled.

The recall involves Mattress World’s renovated twin, full, queen, and king mattress sets sold in blue floral, white floral, and taupe floral. Only mattresses with tags attached identifying Mattress World as the manufacturer with a prototype ID of MWQ or MWFOBXQ are affected. The sets were manufactured May 29, 2009, through Sept. 4, 2009; the mattress tag will include its date of manufacture. The mattress sets were sold at various furniture stores in Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas from May 2009 through September 2009 for between $35 and $105.

No incidents or injuries have been reported, CPSC said.

For more information, contact Mattress World at (877) 819-0725 between 9 a.m and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or e-mail the firm at mattressworld@live.com.
