About 169,000 VYSSA crib mattress have been recalled by IKEA North America Services LLC, of Conshohocken, Penn. The crib mattresses could create a gap between the mattress and crib ends larger than allowed by federal regulations, posing an entrapment hazard to infants.
This recall involves IKEA VYSSA style crib mattresses with the following five model names: VACKERT, VINKA, SPELEVINK, SLÖA and SLUMMER. The involved mattresses were manufactured on May 4, 2014 or earlier. An identification label attached to the mattress cover has the date of manufacture in Month-DD-YYYY format and the VYSSA model name. A gap between the mattress and crib ends larger than two finger width is an indication of the defective mattress. The firm has received two reports of infants becoming entrapped between the mattress and an end of the crib. The children were removed from the gap without injury.
The mattress was sold exclusively at IKEA stores nationwide and online at www.ikea-usa.com from August 2010 to May 2014 for about $100. Consumers should 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 mattresses and return it to any IKEA store for an exchange or a full refund.
