Nipoamerican has announced a recall for potentially dangerous mattresses.

The company is recalling all models and sizes of Niposul and NipoFlorida Elegance, Elegance Gold, and Evolution mattresses. These items fail to meet the mandatory federal open flame standard for mattresses.

The Elegance and Evolution mattresses are white and the Elegance Gold mattresses are white with black sides. NIPOBRASILEIRA and ORIENTAL J2000 are embroidered on the side of the mattress.

The items could be purchased at Niposul stores in Massachusetts and NipoFlorida stores in Florida from July 2014 through October 2015 for between $1,200 and $6,500.

Consumers should contact Niposul or NipoFlorida for free mattress covers to bring the mattress into compliance with the federal standard and protect consumers from a fire. Assistance with installation is available upon request.

Customers with questions about these recalls can contact Niposul at (855) 336-4848 and NipoFlorida at (508) 958-6608.
