Revision of F2755-14 Standard Safety Specification for Cautionary Labeling of Inflatable Air Mattresses

Rationale

Air mattresses continue to grow in popularity as an alternative to traditional mattresses and infant deaths continue to be a concern. This update seeks to increase parental awareness of the dangers of placing infants and toddlers to sleep on air mattresses by increasing the alert level, simplifying the messaging, and adding a new icon to communicate the proper spacing of the product from fixed surfaces to prevent entrapment.
