Woman Finds Old Infested Mattress Hidden Inside New Mattress

When consumers purchase brand new goods from a merchant, they have a reasonable expectation in place that the goods are in fact new. According to Yahoo, this Phoenix mom would find that her supposedly new mattress was anything but new, and that it was infested with bed bugs to boot.

Alison Kiefer purchased a set of twin bunk bed mattresses from local retailer Mattress 101.

Everything seemed to be fine with them at the time of purchase, but they would turn out to be anything but fine. Her young daughter would wake up in the middle night ‘freaked out’ over a bug that crawled across her bed.

Alison would contact an exterminator, and be pretty shocked with what they discovered.

Exterminator Brent Agee of Master Tech Post solutions would get to the source of the problem, and he explains what he found.

"A mattress inside a mattress, and actually that's the first time I actually heard about people doing that. But that's usually where you find bed bugs, is the mattresses," he said.

Turns out that while the mattress had been presented as a new one, it was actually an old one infested with bed bugs stuffed inside of new wrapping.

The store claims to not be aware that the mattress was refurbished, but has offered a refund and money towards the cleanup bills, which Alison has yet to receive.
