IKEA expands recall of crib mattresses due to risk of entrapment

News

(WTNH)- IKEA is expanding their crib mattress recall to include more models after reports that infants were becoming trapped between the mattress and the crib. IKEA has received two reports of infants becoming entrapped between the mattress and an end of the crib, which were reported in the previous recall. The children were removed from the gap without injury.

This recall applies to any SULTAN or VYSSA crib mattress with the dimensions 52″ length by 27 ½” width with date of manufacture May 4, 2014 or earlier. Identification can be found on a permanent label attached to the mattress cover, showing date of manufacture, format and Model: SULTAN or VYSSA name. In the YY-WW format, mattresses with a date code of 14-18 or earlier are being recalled. 

Consumers should verify that their crib mattress has the correct length. Measure a possible gap by removing all bedding, for example fitted sheets, and then make sure there is no gap larger than the width of two fingers between the ends of the crib and the mattress. If any gap is larger, customers should immediately stop using the recalled mattresses and return it to any IKEA store for an exchange or a full refund.It is recommended that only IKEA fitted crib sheets are used with SULTAN or VYSSA crib mattresses.

Proof of purchase is not required to receive an exchange or a full refund for the return.

SULTAN and VYSSA crib mattresses have been sold in the United States since October 2000.
