Folding Mattresses Recalled

Recalled folding mattressAccording to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, importer Factory Direct Wholesale in Duluth, Georgia, has recalled folding mattresses that can be used as a chair or bed.

About 2,500 of the mattresses were recalled because they fail to meet the mandatory federal flammability standard for mattresses, posing a fire hazard. No injuries have been reported.

The gray mattresses were sold in widths of 38 inches (twin), 53 inches (full) and 60 inches (queen). They measure 4 inches high when configured as a mattress. The tag on the side of the mattress says: “Factory Direct Wholesale, Made in China” and model number FDW-RJ-38Q, FDW-RJ-53F or FDW-RJ-60Q.

The mattresses were sold online at Amazon, eBay, Newegg, Rakuten, Walmart and Wish from April 2018 through January 2019 for about $100. They were manufactured by Relux Mattress Co. Ltd. of China and imported by Factory Direct Wholesale.

The CPSC said consumers should immediately stop using the recalled mattresses and contact Factory Direct Wholesale to receive a free cover, including shipping, to bring the mattress into compliance with the federal standard.
