Mattress industry supplier Leggett & Platt, based in Carthage, Mo., has voluntarily recalled about 25,200 adjustable bed bases manufactured at a plant in Georgetown, Ky., according to a release from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The bases were recalled because “electrical components in the motor control board can fail and short, causing overheating, which poses a fire hazard,” according to the CPSC.
A CPSC news release announcing the recall on March 22 said L&P “has received 29 complaints of overheating in the electronic motor control board located in a housing underneath the deck of the power foundation.” No injuries have been reported.
Recalled motorized foundations include the Titanium, Gold and Signature from L&P. The bases also were sold under the Interflex, American Signature, Spring Air, Sealy and Simmons brand names.
Consumers should identify their products by looking at the remote controls, which are either black or dark gray and feature multiple buttons. A label will have one of these brand names: Adjustables by Leggett & Platt, Interflex, American Signature, Sealy, Simmons or Spring Air. Photographs of these remotes and these labels can be viewed anytime at www.titaniumrecall.com.
The bases, offered in all sizes, were sold at mattress retailers nationwide from March 2008 to October 2011 for about $1,700 to $2,200.
Consumers should unplug the power cord and stop using the power functions of the bases. They can contact L&P to arrange for a free in-home repair of the product or for a free modification kit and installation instructions. Consumers should contact L&P at 855- 853-3539 or visit the website www.titaniumrecall.com. A photo of the recalled product can be found at the CPSC press release.
