recalls mattresses

San Francisco–based manufacturer has voluntarily recalled about 140 mattresses that fail to meet the federal open–flame mattress standard, 16 CFR Part 1633, according to a notice from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission released July 23.

The Natural Sense foam–block, cotton–covered mattresses were sold online from July 2007 through May 2009. They were available in twin, twin long, full, full long, queen, California king and extended king sizes, retailing for between $225 and $1,420. The mattresses were manufactured in the United States.

Foam mattresses that have a cover with a gold ribbon pattern and a label stating, “This mattress meets the requirements of 16 CFR Part 1633 (federal flammability open–flame standard for mattress sets) when used without a foundation or with foundations” are not included in this recall, the CPSC said.

The CPSC said consumers should contact to determine if their mattress is included in the recall, and if it is, to receive a free cover to be placed over their mattress.

For additional information, the CPSC tells consumers to contact by calling 800–256–6162.
