Misled on Zedbed

I purchased the Zedbed because my husband liked memory foam. We had had a MF topper on our bed before and we both liked it. I began to learn about off gassing and that was a concern for us. The store we purchased the bed from told us repeatedly there would be no smell, or off gassing. BTW, it is only offgassing if it is a competitor. They also told us it was Certi-pur certified. Well, I had the windows open for 3 weeks and it still smelled. After sleeping on the bed for a week, I developed severe headches in the middle of the night and had asthma attacks which are very rare for me over the last several years. I then tried sleeping in my son's bed for a few nights and was fine. Repeated experience and same thing. I found out that the SOME of the mattress is certi pur certified and the top layer is not. I bought the bed because I was told it wouldn't smell and it was certified. Both were not true. It is memory foam and this one came with a strong odor that caused headaches etc for me. My husband could smell it but it didn't affect him at all. To Zedbed credit, they do address the smell under the FAQ as the first question, and state it will go away after 4 weeks. The brochure also states the smell does not qualify for a warranty issue. They do not state the mattress is certified but the website does imply it. I did get a brocure after the fact that showed only the bottom layers were certified. So, the Zedbed, comfort wise, is not a bad bed at all. It seems to be fantastic for sleeping. But if you are senstive to smells or memory foam in general, this may not be a good fit. Also, I would not pay the extra money to get a "natural bed" because it is a basic well designed memory foam and not much natural about it. We sold it and got another bed (OMF) for a fraction of the cost (with no fire retardent chemicals etc..) and are very happy.
