IKEA mattresses recalled due to entrapment hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) stated that IKEA is recalling approximately 169,000 VYSSA style crib mattresses after receiving two reports of children becoming entrapped between the ends of the crib and the mattress, the CPSC reported on January 13.

The company said a gap larger than the width of two fingers between the edges of the mattress and the crib may entrap infants and cause injuries. The recalled products were manufactured on May 4, 2014 or earlier. The affected models are VACKERT, VINKA, SPELEVINK, SLOA, and SLUMMER, which were sold at IKEA stores nationwide and online between August 2010 and May 2014.

Consumers are asked to refrain from using the affected childcare product and to return it for a replacement or refund.
