If you purchased a mattress on Amazon from May of 2016 to May of 2017, there’s an important recall you should be aware of. More than 6,000 Home Life mattresses sold on the e-commerce web site during that time frame, the Consumer Product Safety Commission says, don’t meet federal flammability standards, and could pose a serious fire risk.

The mattresses ranged from $50 to $150, and were sold exclusively on Amazon by Superior Importers. Amazon is the world’s largest mattress retailer, and Home Life mattresses received overall fairly positive reviews, so there’s likely a large number of people still using a recalled mattress.

This marks the second recall in just a week for mattresses that don’t meet flammability standards, as over 23,000 “Dream On Me” crib mattresses were recalled by the manufacturer.

All sizes are a part of the Home Life recall, including twin, full, queen, and king sizes with a tan or gray trim. A small tag on the bottom of the mattress reads, “Made For: Superior Importers company, 502 Jersey Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ 08901.”

No injuries have been reported yet as a result of the mattress’ flaws (you can report one via the CPSC link above), but the manufacturer recommends you stop using it immediately if you have one and contact Superior Importers for a free mattress cover that will make the mattress compliant. They can be reached by phone at 833-502-2500 or through their web site at www.superiorimporters.com. The new cover should arrive within 14 days of order.
US federal law states that all mattresses sold in America must meet certain requirements when it comes to flammability. The Home Life brand of mattresses is produced in China, but sold in the USA through Amazon.
You can get more information about federal mattress fire standards by calling the CPSC at 800-638-2772 or by visiting their web site at www.saferproducts.gov.
