J.M. Mattress has issued a recall of roughly 240 mattresses because they do not meet the mandatory federal open flame standard for mattresses, rendering them a fire hazard.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), J.M. Mattress is recalling the mattresses because they fail to meet the Standard of Flammability of Mattress Sets.
This regulation, established in 2006, basically states that mattresses are to be able to resist ignition from an open flame, such as a candle or a match, and are to be tested by a third party.
J.M. Mattress is proactively recalling these renovated, or rebuilt, mattresses even though there have not been any incidents or injuries reported. Consumers are encouraged to contact J.M. Mattress to arrange to have the mattresses picked up, repaired, and returned free of charge.
