SHELTON, Conn.-Latex International has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Connecticut.
The latex pillow and mattress manufacturer said in a statement that, at the time of the filing, it had about $29 million in liabilities and $26 million in assets.
