Title: “Recall Alert: Costco Recalls Thousands of Mattresses Over Potential Mold Exposure”
In a recent announcement, FXI Inc., the manufacturer of Novaform mattresses sold exclusively at Costco, issued a recall due to concerns of potential mold exposure. The recall, which was initially announced in June, affects tens of thousands of mattresses, putting customers’ health at risk. The Novaform ComfortGrande 14-inch and Novaform DreamAway 8-inch mattresses are the specific products being recalled.
The recall stems from the possibility that these mattresses may have been exposed to water during the manufacturing process, creating an environment conducive to mold development. Mold, known to pose health risks, could be especially problematic for individuals with allergies, damaged lungs, or weakened immune systems. Symptoms of mold exposure can range from burning eyes to respiratory problems and skin irritations.
Approximately 48,000 mattresses have been impacted by this recall, and in response, FXI is urging customers to contact them for a full refund or a free replacement mattress. The company assures customers that the recall process will include pickup and disposal of the affected mattress, with the new one delivered at no additional cost.
The recalled mattresses were sold in various sizes and were available at Costco stores and the company’s website between January and June. In an effort to reach affected customers directly, Costco is proactively reaching out to those who purchased the recalled products.
Although FXI has received reports of 541 cases of mold on the mattresses, luckily, no injuries have been reported so far. However, to shed light on the recall and address questions regarding the situation, ABC News has reached out to FXI for a comment.
Ensuring consumer safety and addressing potential health hazards remains a top priority for both FXI and Costco. As investigations and efforts to mitigate the issue continue, customers are urged to check if they are in possession of the affected mattresses and take the necessary steps to ensure their health and well-being.
