A good rest is definitely an essential part of everyone’s life. On a daily basis, your mattress is the last place you will look during the day and the first place where you will start your day. So choosing the right mattress should be something that should not be taken lightly.
Also, when choosing a new mattress, you may be considering some aspects such as the position in which you sleep, the size you need, the firmness that suits you, your budget, and what other sleepers had to say about the mattress you have in mind to acquire.
But sometimes it happens, that the mattress that you took the time to choose, that same model and brand, has had a recall. Therefore, here we will show you a list of recalls of different types of mattresses, brands, and models that you can take into account before making the big purchase.

What You Need To Know About Recalls
Some of the standards defined as Federal Regulation of Mattresses Involve:
- Flammability tests: If you are buying a mattress in the United States, it would be obligated to comply the requirements of 16 CFR Parts 1632 and 1633 established by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on flammability.
- Third Party Testing: The section for the CPSIA (The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act) declares that all products and objects for children require all the testings to a product safety rule will be conducted by a third laboratory, or in-house, accredited by the CPSC.
- Requirements for Children’s Products and Child Care Articles:
- If a mattress or care products are considered to be for children, they must complete in addition to the standards mentioned above, several other requirements administered by the CPSC. Any component in the product should have more than 100nparts per million of lead.
- But, they had granted testing exceptions for some textile materials like: cotton, linen, jute, ramie, hemp, bamboo, silk, wool (sheep), alpaca, llama, goat (mohair, cashmere), rabbit (angora), horse, vicuna, guanaco, and rayon, azlon, lyocell, acetate, triacetate, rubber, polyester, olefin, nylon, acrylic, modacrylic, aramid, spandex.
- Crib Mattress Standard: Another standard has to do with sets for the size requirement for crib mattresses. They must include a label with safety warnings advising to make sure the mattress fits properly on the crib, preventing Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)
