Silly Laws

Silly Laws in West Palm Beach, Florida

Here’s another “silly law” that really isn’t so silly…

Every state has ridiculous laws on their books and Florida is no exception.  Have you ever heard that urban legend that tearing off a mattress label can land you in jail?  Well it’s not too far from the truth.

Florida Statute 501.145, entitled the Bedding Label Act, states:  All bedding manufactured and sold in Florida must contain a label at least 1 inch by 2 inches in dimension specifically describing the materials used in the bedding.  It must be stitched or otherwise firmly attached, and anyone that sells bedding that contains used materials not labeled in accordance with this Statute commits a misdemeanor crime of the second degree.  MAKE SURE WHEN YOU BUY A MATTRESS THAT THIS LABEL IS ATTACHED!!
