In 2007, all mattresses are obligated to pass a fire retardant test. In order to pass the test your mattress needs to contain enough Fire Retardant Chemicals to withstand a two foot wide blowtorch flame for over 60 seconds.
Why should you be concerned? Is it possible that it contains toxic chemicals?
Unfortunately, most of the conventional mattress stores and furniture stores carry the major sleep product brands, which use a highly controversial fire retardants due to its cost savings.
