Failing to meet the federal standards for mattress flammability, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced last Friday that it wil be recalling some 1500 mattresses that were sold in Georgia and two other states in the US.
The recall order was set a year after a report from a CBS station in Atlanta exposed this. The report, however, was filed last year. The mattress in question comes from the American Mattress Manufacturing Company, also based in Atlanta. These were used mattresses that have been removed of its springs and then rebuilt with different materials and fabrics. These mattresses specifically have a yellow tag attached to them, with the name of the manufacturing company written on the tag. These mattresses were sold at $30 to $200, in various sizes, including bunk bed mattresses.
