IKEA Crib Mattresses Get Hit with Third Recall this Year
About 38,400 IKEA crib mattresses are being recalled for failing to meet federal fire safety regulations.
This is the third recall this year for the VYSSA SPELEVINK line which, along with other models, were recalled in January and May after reports that babies became trapped between the mattress and the crib rails.
While the mattresses fail to meet federal open flame standards, no injuries or incidents have been reported.
The recalled mattresses are 52 inches long and 27 1/2 inches wide. The crib mattresses are white with a blue piping around the edge. It includes a identification label attached to the mattress cover that has the date of manufacture in month-DD-YY format or YY-W format and the VYSSA SPELEVINK model name. Mattresses made after July 2007 also have a federal tag at the foot of the mattress.
They were sold exclusively at IKEA stores nationwide and online from October 2000 through May 2014 for about $100.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled crib mattresses and return them to any IKEA store for a full refund. Mattresses that were given in an exchange to consumers for their VYSSA SPELEVINK mattresses in the two previous recalls are included in this recall program.
