Recall - Matelas d'Or's Futon Mattresses With Springs

Web posted on March 04, 2014

This recall involves all the futon-style double mattresses with springs manufactured by the company Matelas d'Or on and after September 1, 2012.

These futon-style mattresses with springs can be used as both a sofa and a bed because the mattress is on a removable base that makes it possible to switch between these options. The cover for the futon-style mattresses varies with the units produced.

Matelas d'Or is voluntarily recalling these products after Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program determined that these futon-style double mattresses pose a flammability hazard.

The Hazardous Products (Mattresses) Regulations require that all mattresses, including futons, resist ignition when tested with a smouldering cigarette ignition. Consumers should immediately stop using these futon-style double mattresses with springs and contact the company for repair.

Neither Health Canada nor Matelas d'Or has received any reports of incident or injuries related to the use of this product.

The product was manufactured in Quebec, Canada by Matelas d'Or, Lanoraie, Quebec. The recalled futon-style double mattresses with springs were sold from September 2012 to February 2014. Approximately 289 futon-style double mattresses with springs are being recalled and were sold in retail furniture stores.

For more information, consumers may contact Matelas d'Or by telephone at 1-450-944-1766, Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
