The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) voluntarily recalled about 25,200 power foundations or adjustable bases for mattresses over fire hazards the bases pose to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide recall on March 22, 2012.
The mattress foundations and bases were recalled after discovering that the electrical components in the motor control board can fail and short, which can result in overheating. This poses a fire hazard to consumers.
“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 brand 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 remote 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,” reported the CPSC.
Consumers are advised to contact Leggett to arrange for a free in-home repair of the product, or a free modification kit and consumer installation instructions.
For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact Leggett at (855) 853-3539 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Monday through Friday ET, or visit www.titaniumrecall.com.
