If your child’s mattress is on the list, remove it from their bed right away. Then, call Dream On Me toll-free at 877-201-4317 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. The recall number is: 18-058.
Customers who bought these now-recalled mattresses will be given a mattress cover which does meet federal flammability standards for free.
No injuries have been reported from the use of these recalled mattresses, but it’s important that parents still take steps to remove or update these potentially harmful items from their home and receive a safe replacement from the Dream On Me company.
Correction 12/28/17: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that Dream On Me would provide compliant replacements to those who had purchased mattresses that are part of this recall. Dream On Me will provide a compliant mattress cover—not a new mattress—that will bring the mattress into compliance with federal safety standards. We regret the error.
