On July 30, Nipponflex, which has headquarters in Pompano Beach, Florida, recalled about 400 mattresses 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.
Nipponflex has recalled Smart Care, Smart Care split, Smart Flex and Smart Flex split mattresses. The mattresses are white and have an electric massage function controlled by a remote. The split mattresses consist of two single mattresses side by side to form a queen- or king-size mattress. “Nipponflex” and “SMART FLEX” or “SMART CARE” are printed on a label on a side of the mattress.
The beds were manufactured in Brazil and sold by independent distributors via in-home sales in Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Utah and Virginia from April 2014 through February 2015. The mattresses retailed for between $2,000 and $7,000.
The CPSC advises consumers to contact Nipponflex for free mattress covers to bring the mattress into compliance with the federal standard and protect consumers from a fire. Assistance with installation is available upon request.
