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 www.titaniumrecall.com. No other power foundations are involved in this recall.
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.
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.
Mattress retailers nationwide from March of 2008 to October of 2011 for about $1,700 to $2,200.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical or mechanical hazard. CPSC's work to help ensure the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters and household chemicals -– contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years.
Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly-announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.
