Mattress Covers Pulled


Thousands of terry cloth mattress covers are being recalled because of a potential fire threat.

Dux Interiors is recalling approximately 37,000 of them.

The covers were made to fit over the Dux top pads and they do not meet the federal standard for flammability under the Flammable Fabrics Act. They pose a risk of burn injury to consumers if exposed to smoldering or burning cigarettes.

No incidents or injuries have been reported.

The recalled PMCs are natural-colored terry cloth made of 100 percent cotton, and come in twin, full, queen, and king sizes to cover top pads made by Dux.

They were available solely through Dux-owned stores and licensed outlets from January 1999 through April 2006. The PMC was provided at no additional cost to each customer who purchased a Dux mattress pad and mattress set.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled PMCs and discard them. Dux Interiors is directly contacting consumers who received PMC covers with their mattress purchases.

For more information, contact Dux Interiors Inc. toll-free at (888) 836-7556 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
