MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Does your precious bundle of joy count sheep on a mattress from IKEA? If so, it’s time to stop as the as the furniture retailer has expanded its recall of crib mattresses.
The company’s SULTAN and VYSSA crib mattress could create a gap between the mattress and the crib ends larger than allowed by federal regulations. The gap poses an entrapment hazard to infants.
Approximately 300,000 in the United States, and about 44,000 in Canada, have been recalled by the company, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The Swedish retailer received two reports of infants becoming entrapped between the mattress and an end of the crab. The children were removed without injury.
Consumers are recommended by the CPSC to immediately stop using a recalled mattress and inspect it by making sure there is no gap larger than the width of two fingers between the ends of the crib and mattress.
The mattresses, which retail for about $20 to $100, were sold at stores nationwide and online between October of 2000 and May of last year.
About 169,000 VYSSA crib mattresses were recalled in January. The expansion includes about 131,000 SULTAN crib mattresses in the U.S. and 44,000 in Canada.
Consumers are asked to return the mattress to any IKEA store for an exchange or full refund.
