Ikea Recalls Crib Mattresses After Babies Are Trapped


Ikea is recalling about 169,000 crib mattresses after reports that two infants were trapped between the mattress and the end of their cribs, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Tuesday.

The Ikea mattresses were sold between August 2010 and May 2014 may violate federal regulations. The commission said the gap between the mattress and crib must be less that the width of two fingers. "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," the CPSC said.

No proof of purchase is necessary to return or exchange one of the crib mattresses, Ikea said.

The mattresses being recalled are the Ikea Vyssa sold under the model names Vackert, Vinka, Spelevink, Slöa and Slummer. The mattresses have a label showing the date of manufacture and "Vyssa." The recalled mattresses, which were made in Mexico, were sold only at Ikea stores and Ikea's website.

For more information, consumers can call Ikea at 888-966-4532 or visit Ikea's recall site.
