325F.31 BEDDING TO BE LABELED.
No person shall make or remake, or sell, offer for sale, consign for sale, or possess with
intent to sell, offer for sale, or consign for sale any article of bedding unless the same is labeled
as follows:
On each article of bedding a label of durable material not less than three by 4-1/2 inches in
size shall be displayed, upon which shall be in plain print, in the English language, a description
of the material used as filling of such article of bedding; and, if such material, or any portion
thereof, shall not have been previously used, the words "manufactured of new material" shall
appear upon the label, together with the name and address of the maker or vendor thereof. If
any of the material used in the making or remaking of such article of bedding shall have been
previously used, the words "manufactured of secondhand material" or "remade of second-hand
material", as the case may be, shall appear upon the label, together with the name and address
of the maker or vendor thereof, and also a description of the material used in the filling of such
article of bedding. On any article of bedding, not remade, but which has been previously used, the
words "secondhand materials used in filling not known" shall appear upon the label, together with
the name and address of the vendor thereof.
The statement required under this section shall be in form as follows:
"OFFICIAL STATEMENT
Materials used in filling ...............
Made by..................................
Vendor ..................................
Address .................................
This article is made in compliance with Minnesota Statutes, sections 325F.25 to 325F.32."
The statement of compliance required in the foregoing official statement shall not be
construed to imply that it is prohibited to state also that the article of bedding is made in
compliance with any act or acts of other states.
The words "manufactured of new material", or "manufactured of secondhand material," or
any article of bedding not remade, "secondhand materials used in filling not known," together
with the description of the material used as filling of an article of bedding, shall be in letters not
less than one-eighth of an inch in height. No term or description likely to mislead shall be used
on any label to describe material used in the filling of any article of bedding. The label shall be
attached to each mattress, pad, or upholstered spring by sewing all four edges of the label.
