Chicago store recalls mattresses

Mattresses sold exclusively at Chicago Century Furniture are recalled because they pose a fire hazard.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall Wednesday, May 23, 2012.

“The mattresses fail to meet the mandatory federal open flame standard for mattresses, posing a fire hazard to consumers,” according to the CPSC.

About 340 of the mattresses were sold at Chicago Century Furniture, 3034 South Wentworth Avenue in Chicago for between $190 and $360 from January 2008 through October 2010.

The recalled mattresses are twin-, full-, queen- and king-size and tagged with the model number MG006.  The model number is on a paper tag attached to the foot of the mattress. 

Chicago Century Furniture is offering a replacement mattress to affected customers.  The company is reportedly contacting customers directly, or you can call them between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Central time toll-free at (855) 236-8830.
