The mattresses fail to meet the mandatory federal flammability standard for mattresses, posing a fire hazard.
The recall involves Waterproof Foam Mattresses, and were sold in twin, twin XL, and full sizes. The recalled mattresses have a blue cover with the ESS Universal logo featuring a gorilla picture and the words “ESS Universal” and “Comfort with Water Resistant Technology.” The inner lining is black. No federal labels were included with the mattresses as required.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled mattresses and contact ESS Universal to arrange for shipment of a cover with zipper for consumers to place over the foam core that will bring the mattresses into compliance, free of charge. ESS Universal USA is contacting all purchasers directly.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
