USA LABELING OF CHAMBERED BEDDING PRODUCTS
IABFLO – FINAL VERSION 22 March 2007
Chambered Products are pillows, comforters, and featherbeds which have 2 or more separate compartments or layers. The separate chambers are normally filled with different materials. The materials can be different grades of down and feathers or completely different materials such as foam and feathers.
The following is required labeling for such products on the Uniform Law Tag labels.
Suggested packaging and advertising formats are also included to meet “Truth-in-Advertising” requirements of the FTC and/or individual state regulations.
- Each chamber shall be listed separately on the law tag label.
- The percent by weight of each chamber shall be listed.
The different chambers shall be listed in order of their highest weight. For example, if a product contained 3 oz. polyester in the outer chamber and 7 oz. goose feathers in an inner chamber the correct label would be
INNER CHAMBER 70% : GOOSE FEATHERS
OUTER CHAMBER 30% : POLYESTER FIBERS
- The approved terms for the different parts of the pillow
QUILTED OUTER CHAMBER
