London — Fallout from deliveries of contaminated TDI from BASF saw two mattress firms EVE Sleep and Slientnight in the UK announcing production freezes while the situation was investigated.
According to London’s Daily Telegraph Silentnight said: ‘Following this thorough investigation, we can confirm that there has been no impact whatsoever on the quality or safety of any products manufactured at our Silentnight Group sites. We have now resumed manufacturing.’ The company added that there is likely to be some disruption to supplies in the short term.
In Germany, Eve halted production at the German factory which supplies it while checks were performed.
‘Eve’s UK and French Products are produced in the UK using a separate supply route and were therefore never potentially affected. As a precaution,’ the spokesman added, ‘manufacturing was suspended immediately at the German factory which supplies Eve’s European customers. We can confirm that all our products are completely unaffected and absolutely safe for customers.’
Eve listed on the London Alternative Investments Market on 18 May 2017 and signed a contract for its products to be distributed in Germany through the Karstadt department store chain in early September.
