I told him that after reading that long section on some poster I don't even know.
I have no idea why some would save so many links or track them down. I simply don't have the time nor am I that interested on what someone else in another area is doing. I can control my circle, not everyone else.
I agree .... Ferr needs to get .... a girlfriend!
Hey!!! What am I, chopped liver?????

RAmen! To the links and someone one doesn't even know issue. Many, many posters post countless links, as if anyone else is even interested in their Topix "fights".

You would think it would be natural. However, many in our country think importing poverty is a good idea.
It does seem to be that way. Sad.

Why is it illegal to remove mattress and pillow tags?

Unbeknownst to many innocent consumers out there, the warning that it is unlawful to remove the tags from a mattress or pillow is not for you! It is for pillow and mattress sellers only. How many times does that mean you have unnecessarily awoken with the long pillow tags rhythmically flying in and out of your gaping lips, in sync with your snoring- all because you – a law abiding citizen – are afraid the pillow and mattress tag police may raid your house and find you guilty of snipping off those annoying tags? Fear no longer!

The specific US Code we’re dealing with here is Title 15 – Commerce and Trade, Chapter 2, Subchapter V – Textile Fiber Products Identification, Section 70c – Removal of stamp, tag, label, or other identification Statute (a) Removal or mutilation after shipment in commerce. This states:
“After shipment of a textile fiber product in commerce it shall be unlawful, except as provided in this subchapter, to remove or mutilate, or cause or participate in the removal or mutilation of, prior to the time any textile fiber product is sold and delivered to the ultimate consumer, any stamp, tag, label, or other identification required by this subchapter to be affixed to such textile fiber product, any person violating this section shall be guilty of an unfair method of competition, and an unfair or deceptive act or practice, under the Federal Trade Commission Act.“
This became the law in the early 20th century when the US government responded to concerns that some of the materials used in pillows and mattresses easily conducted illnesses or harbored pests such as lice. Some manufacturers would stuff their goods with just about anything including horse hair or corn husks, since the customer could not see them. Mattress and pillow manufacturers were required to clearly define the contents of their products and to identify whether or not these contents were new or recycled materials by placing tags on them. This was important as recycled materials could still contain lice, bedbugs or human excretion. This information allowed consumers to make informed decisions about their purchases. It also meant that based upon their contents, some mattresses and pillows would not sell. In order to ensure no pillow and mattress sellers removed these tags in order to make the sale, they were stamped, in bold letters, with a clear message –“Do not remove under penalty of law”. The words,“except by the consumer” have since been added but not a lot of consumers bother to read the tags in detail.
Although it may not be illegal for you, the consumer, to remove the tags from your pillows or mattresses, it is a good idea if you cut them off to safely store them with your warranty information. Many mattress manufacturers, including Sealy, Serta and Simmons require the tags to be produced in a warranty claim.

Yes, in Canada you have to buy a ticket and line up for it, sort of socialist. We call it public funded foreplay.
