ORLANDO, Fla. – Thousands of mattresses sold exclusively at Costco have been recalled due to risk of mold exposure, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
About 48,000 of the mattresses were recalled because they “could have been exposed to water during the manufacturing process allowing mold to develop and posing a health risk to individuals with compromised immune systems, damaged lungs or an allergy to mold,” the CPSC said.
So far, there have been 541 reports of mold on the mattresses, according to the recall.
The recall includes the Novaform ComfortGrande 14-inch and the Novaform DreamAway 8-inch mattresses. The ComfortGrande 14-inch mattress has a blue base with “Novaform” printed in white letters and the DreamAway 8-inch mattress has a gray base with “Novaform” printed in white letters.
