What is the problem?

The mattress sets fail to meet mandatory federal open flame standard and pose a fire hazard to consumers.

Special note regarding all cribs: New safety standards for cribs went into effect on June 28, 2011. In addition to a ban on the traditional drop-side, there are new requirements for stronger slats, hardware and mattress supports, as well as new rules for more rigorous testing. Although older cribs were not automatically recalled, it is now illegal to sell cribs that do not comply with the new laws. Furthermore, consumers should not plan to give away or donate cribs purchased before June 28 , 2011 unless they have actual knowledge (such as a letter or certificate from the manufacturer) that the crib complies with the new laws. For more information, please visit our blog post with FAQs about cribs.

How can I tell if I own this product?

This recall involves crib mattresses. The crib mattresses do not have any labels.

Bunkie Mattresses and Mattress Sets were also recalled for the same hazard.
