Josja Van der Maas, business leader, sleep at IKEA of Sweden has provided Cabinet Maker with a statement with regards to the findings of the Mattress Report. 

Josja said: “The safety of our products is our highest priority and in the UK, all of our mattresses and mattress toppers comply with the requirements contained in the UK Furniture and Furnishings (Fire Safety) Regulations act 1988. This is verified via regular tests by independent third party laboratories in the UK. To ensure consistent compliance, we test our mattresses and mattress toppers every six months and we have no record of the MORGEDAL mattress having failed a test.

“Following the failure reported by Cabinet Maker, we have immediately begun an investigation including re-testing of the MORGEDAL mattress.

“Should customers be unhappy with any of their IKEA products they can return them to their local IKEA store in line with our returns policy. For more information, customers are welcome to contact us on 0203 645 0010.”
