A law label is a legally required tag that informs consumers the hidden contents, or “filling materials”, inside bedding, furniture and other products.

Manufacturers that do not attach a durable, legible tag risk facing fines, products being removed from shelves and/or manufacturing delays. 

Currently, 31 states and Canada, demand law labels on certain products. The products that require law labels varies in each state, as does the labeling requirements.
