Pretty sure that is meant for the stores.. you can do whatever you want with it when you get it home.

You can do anything you want including ripping off the tags.

The warning is aimed at shady retailers.

As long as you aren’t in the business of selling mattresses you are golden.

It was always meant to be for everyone but the consumer, but they have now changed the law to say that you can rip it off if you are the consumer.

You may rip them after purchasing your mattress.

Never buy a mattress without a tag.

The tags are there for the consumers benefit. no tag, look elsewhere. the tag is to give the consumer pertinent information about the contents of the mattress and where it was made. the tag is strictly for the buying consumers information. once purchased, the mattress belongs to you and you do whatever pleases you.
