A serious cause for concern regarding Ashley and Nectar mattresses has recently come to light: the fibers of glass that the product can release may severely injure your baby by cutting up their skin. If the health of your child was affected by the fiberglass in an Ashley, or Nectar mattress, you might be eligible for compensation.

While?Ashley and Nectar insist their mattresses are safe and that they comply with government regulation, more and more people have recently come forward, alleging serious injuries caused by the companies' products.

In the past, manufacturers of mattresses would add various chemicals such as fire retardants to their products. However, due to the high toxicity of those chemicals, they were subsequently forced to find alternatives, one of which is fiberglass.

It is estimated that up to 90% of people in the United States have flame retardant chemicals in their bodies, which is alarming. Since 2007, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission made it mandatory for manufacturers of mattresses to add a fire retardant to their products.

Ashley and Nectar are one of the numerous companies whose mattresses contain fiberglass as a fire retardant. Nonetheless, there are safer substitutes to fiberglass that can be added to mattresses, such as the following:

  • pure wool
  • silica
  • kevlar
If you have an Ashley or Nectar mattress, you should be very careful with it, and?under no circumstances should you remove the outer cover of the product.
