Novaform ComfortGrande and DreamAway mattresses, sold exclusively at Costco, have been recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), which says they may have been exposed to mold during their manufacturing process.
According to CPSC, the manufacturer, FXI, has recalled about 48,000 mattresses. That decision affects the 14-inch Novaform ComfortGrande and 8-inch Novaform DreamAway mattresses, which are sold in the sizes twin, full, queen, king and California king. The 8-inch mattress is sold in twin and full sizes.

The mattresses were manufactured at FXI's facility in San Bernardino, California, between January 2 and April 28.
According to the agency, the mattresses could have been exposed to water during the manufacturing process, which would have allowed mold to appear. This would pose a health risk to people with weakened immune systems, damaged lungs or mold allergy.

CPSC said information about the date of manufacture and location can be found on a label attached to the mattress.
He also said the ComfortGrande mattress has a blue base with the word "Novaform" printed in white letters, and the DreamAway mattress has a gray base with the same term printed in white letters.
