    sister when she read about Wietschel being investigated by the Arkansas attorney general's office in
    The Morning News.

    mattress pad.

    Wietschel is charged in California with making false claims about the product, and the Arizona
    attorney general's office filed a lawsuit against him in July in an effort to stop him from selling
    the mattress pads in that state. [...]
