Nipponflex Mattresses Recalled for Fire Hazard
About the Nipponflex Mattress Recall
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (US CPSC), about 400 units of Nipponflex Smart Flex and Smart Care mattresses have been recalled.
A release by the commission indicates the mattresses pose the threat of flammability because they do not meet the mandatory federal standards for mattresses.
Fortunately, no injuries or fatalities have been reported.
