American Mattress Mfg. Co., based in Atlanta, has voluntarily recalled about 1,500 mattresses and mattress/foundation sets because the products don’t meet federal flammability standards, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
No injuries have been reported in connection with the mattresses and foundations.
American Mattress has recalled renovated twin-, full-, queen- and king-size mattresses, as well as mattresses with built-in “bunkie” boards. The used mattresses were stripped to the springs and rebuilt by American Mattress in a variety of fabrics and colors. The recalled mattresses have a yellow tag that says “American Mattress Mfg. Co., 1899 Metropolitan Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30315.” Rebuilt mattresses with a federal tag indicating they meet the federal mattress flammability standard are not included in the recall.
The mattresses and foundations were sold at several retailers in Alabama, George and Mississippi from December 2010 through September 2011 for between $30 and $200.
The CPSC advises consumers to immediately contact American Mattress to have the recalled mattress sets picked up, rebuilt to be compliant with the federal flammability standards and returned to the consumer.
