What is the problem?

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

How can I tell if I own this product?

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
American Signature
Spring Air

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

These items were sold new+ at Mattress retailers nationwide from March of 2008 to October of 2011 for about $1,700 to $2,200.
