February 17, 2011: IKEA Recalls Cribs Due to Mattress Support Collapse
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with IKEA Home Furnishings, of Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, have recalled about 26,000 (6,000 in Canada) SINGLAR cribs. The four bolts provided with some SNIGLAR cribs to secure the mattress support are not long enough. This can cause the mattress support to detach and collapse, creating a risk of entrapment and suffocation to a child in the crib. No incidents or injuries have been reported.
Do You Own This Product?
This recall involves SNIGLAR non-drop-side, full-size cribs with model number 60091931. SNIGLAR, IKEA, and the model number are printed on a label attached to the mattress support. The crib frame and mattress support are made of natural/light-colored wood. The cribs sold at IKEA stores nationwide from October 2005 through June 2010 for about $80. They were manufactured in Romania.
Whom to Contact
Consumers should stop using the crib immediately and check the crib. If the mattress support bolts extend through the nut, the bolts are the proper length and the crib is not included in the recall. If the bolt does not extend through the nut, the crib is included in the recall. Contact IKEA for a free repair kit for recalled cribs. In the meantime, find an alternate, safe sleep environment for the child, such as a bassinet, play yard, or toddler bed depending on the child’s age.
