In Uncategorized on March 26, 2012 at 2:50 am

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Name of product: Power foundations or adjustable bases for mattresses

Units: About 25,200

Manufacturer: Leggett & Platt, of Georgetown, Ky.

Hazard: Electrical components in the motor control board can fail and short causing overheating, which poses a fire hazard.

Incidents: The firm has received 29 complaints of overheating in the electronic motor control board located in a housing underneath the deck of the power foundation. No injuries or property damage have been reported.

Description: 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. Photographs of these remotes and these labels can be viewed anytime at www.titaniumrecall.com. No other power foundations are involved in this recall.

Sold at: Mattress retailers nationwide from March of 2008 to October of 2011 for about $1,700 to $2,200.
