When I was little, I was completely convinced the FBI was going to come get me if I so much as thought about taking those tags off. Turns out that fear is totally unfounded (duh), and nothing happens if you take the tag off.

Those warnings are for the people who sell the products, not the consumers. Back in the early 1900s, mattresses could be stuffed with anything, even gross stuff like old rags, and the consumer wasn’t always warned. So regulations were created, and mattresses were required to have tags identifying their stuffing. As a workaround, mattress sellers started ripping those tags clean off before the public could even see them. That’s when those big, scary “DO NOT REMOVE” messages started appearing on the tags.

So, as long as you’re not in the mattress biz, you’ll be fine tearing the tag off.
