Leggett & Platt recalls mattress bases

WASHINGTON, March 23 (UPI) -- Georgetown, Ky., firm Leggett & Platt is recalling 25,200 motorized bed frames for adjustable mattresses due to a fire hazard, regulators said.

The electrical components in the motor control board can fail. A short in the control board can then lead to overheating, posing a fire hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement.


The motorized bed frames that adjust mattresses to various positions are controlled by handheld remotes. They control the height of the foot and head of the bed automatically.

The recall involves several models:"Titanium," "Gold" and "Signature" by Leggett & Platt and other brands names including Interflex, American Signature, Spring Air, Sealy and Simmons.

Consumers were advised to identify their brand and model by looking over the remote, as the motorized bed frames can be very similar to each other.

The power bed frames were sold nationwide from March 2008 through October for about $1,700 to $2,200.

Consumers were advised to unplug the power cord and contact Leggett to arrange for a free, in-home repair.

Consumers can call 855-853-3539 for information.
