Tropical Bedding Mattress Recall

On April 21, 2010, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Tropical Bedding Mfg., of Caguas, Puerto Rico, announced a voluntary recall of approximately 15,000 mattress sets, after the mattresses were found to fall short of mandatory federal open flame standards. The recalled mattress sets pose a fire hazard to users.

The recall affects crib and bunkie mattresses and mattress sets in twin, full, queen, and king sizes. Other mattresses affected by the recall include:

  • "Classics" (except units manufactured between August 2008 and April 2009)
  • "Classics II"
  • "Imagine"
  • "Sweet Mysteries"
  • "Treasures"
  • "Comfort Dream"

The product names are located on a label at the top of the foot of the mattresses. The recalled mattresses and mattress sets were sold at City Mattress and furniture stores in Puerto Rico from July 2007 through September 2009 for between $30 and $135.

Consumers who purchased the recalled mattresses are advised to stop using the mattresses immediately and return them to Tropical Bedding Mfg. for a full refund. The company can be contacted at 787-586-1139.
