Leggett & Platt Mattresses Recalled Due to Fire Hazard

Leggett & Platt Mattresses Recalled Due to Fire Hazard

Recently, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with manufacturer Leggett & Platt, recently announced a voluntary recall of its Power foundations and adjustable bases for mattresses. There are approximately 25,200 units currently in circulation.

The product defect associated with these mattresses involves electrical components in the motor control board which can fail and short out, which, in turn, causes overheating. This condition poses an obvious fire hazard.

Leggett & Platt has received to date approximately twenty-nine (29) complaints of this overheating, the source of which originates in the electronic motor control board located in a housing underneath the deck of the power foundation.

The power foundations are motorized bed frames, controlled by handheld remotes, which enable the head and/or the foot of the bed mattress to be moved up and down. These power foundations were offered in all bed sizes and they were sold with handheld remote controls. The recalled models are "Titanium," "Gold" and "Signature" by Leggett & Platt and other brands names including Interflex, American Signature, Spring Air, Sealy and Simmons. Since power foundations look very similar, consumers should identify their products by looking at the remote controls. The remotes controls are either black or dark gray and feature multiple buttons and a label with one of these brand names: Adjustables by Leggett & Platt, Interflex, American Signature, Sealy, Simmons or Spring Air.
