Fire hazard fears prompt recall of more than 300 mattresses

Posted on

At the request of the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, Chicago Century Furniture Corporation (formerly the Chicago Furniture Corporation) has announced a voluntary recall for approximately 340 Century Mattresses due to their failure to comply with federal safety regulations regarding mattress flammability. Twin, full, queen, and king size mattresses, imprinted with model number MG0006, are being voluntarily recalled because they do not meet fire safety guidelines set forth by the federal government in relation to open flame standards, and therefore pose a possible fire hazard to consumers. The mattresses affected by this recall are marked by a tone on tone swirl pattern imprinted on the white or off white fabric covering a three inch thick mattress pad. A fabric label imprinted with the words Century Spring Mattress and a picture of an embracing couple is sewn on the top side of the mattress near the foot of the bed. A paper tag stamped with the model number is affixed at the foot of the mattress. The mattresses affected by this recall were manufactured in China for exclusive sale at Chicago Century Furniture Incorporated in Chicago, Illinois, from January of 2008 to October of 2010 at a price ranging from $190 to $360. Owners of mattresses affected by this recall should immediately discontinue their use, and they may return them to their original place of purchase for a full refund.
