How can I recognize glass fibers in a Zinus mattress?

In general, mattresses with no zipper on their outer cover and relatively cheap contain glass fibers. However, Zinus mattresses still have a zipper on the outer cover, despite containing glass fibers, making the company liable for misleading their consumers.

In general, mattresses under $600 have glass fibers in them as a fire retardant

As a general rule, there are 2 ways you can recognize a mattress with glass fibers. Namely, it has no removable cover and is relatively cheap, typically under $600.

Nevertheless, Zinus mattresses are the exception, as they have a removable cover that allows people to take it off for washing, which is not recommended and quite dangerous as the glass fibers in the inner layer of the mattress can easily escape and cause a multitude of injuries and health problems.

For this reason, numerous people are waiting for a class-action lawsuit against Zinus to be approved so that they can recover the financial compensation they are entitled to for the injuries they suffered as a result of exposure to glass fibers.

You can recognize glass fibers in a mattress by their smell, as many have a specific odor caused by the binder glue and the formaldehyde they release in the air. Furthermore, some of the glass fibers may have a burnt smell or a sweet burnt smell, while others have a smell of urine. However, because they are tiny, glass fibers cannot usually be seen with the naked eye.

If you walk into a heavily contaminated room with glass fibers, your eyes will start to burn, sting, itch, or water. Similarly, if you slept on a mattress that released glass fibers in the air, you may wake up with a sore throat.
