We're advised by FIRA and from another test labs it isn't unusual to locate inconsistencies in precisely the exact same batch of polyurethane. Because it is the first time we've come across it, especially in regard to the Rest Easy mattress, even once the inconsistency became evident we instantly remembered recent deliveries and suspended deliveries of the version to the shops while we retested,' he explained. 'That which has been achieved in harmony with Trading Standards together with Whom we're co-operating fully.

Stockists have contacted customers and asked them to reunite the futon mattresses. General Traders will think about its recall once the degree of non-compliant mattresses is recognized.
