Recall Details


About 25,200


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, Interflex, American Signature, Sealy, Simmons or Spring Air. Photographs of these remotes and these labels can be viewed anytime at No other power foundations are involved in this recall.


The firm has received 29 complaints of overheating in the electronic motor control board located in a housing underneath the deck of the power foundation. No injuries or property damage have been reported.


Consumers should immediately unplug the power cord and stop using the power functions of the beds. Consumers should contact Leggett to arrange for a free in-home repair of the product or for a free modification kit and consumer installation instructions.
