Ikea expands crib mattress recall

Home furnishings retailer Ikea, which in January recalled 169,000 Vyssa collection crib mattresses due to risk of entrapment, has extended the recall to include Sultan collection crib mattresses, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The latest recall includes about 131,000 Sultan crib mattresses sold in the United States and 44,000 Sultan crib mattresses sold in Canada.

The Vyssa and Sultan crib mattresses can create a gap between the mattress and crib ends larger than allowed by federal regulations. There have been two reports of infants becoming entrapped between the mattress and an end of the crib; neither child sustained injuries, according to the CPSC.

The Vyssa was sold under five model names—Vackert, Vinka, Spelevink, Sloa and Slummer—all of which were recalled Jan. 13. The newly recalled Sultan collection includes four models—Blunda, Dromma, Snarka and Sussa. The recalled crib mattresses were manufactured in China, Mexico, Poland and the United States and sold in Ikea stores from October 2000 to May 2014.

A label attached to the mattress shows the model name and date of manufacture. Consumers are advised to inspect the recalled mattress by making 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 mattress and return it to any Ikea store for an exchange or a full refund.
