Mattress Support Collapse on IKEA Cribs Causes Recall

On February 17 2011, IKEA, Health Canada and US CPSC did a recall on all SNIGLAR Full-sized Cribs. Approximately 6,000 of the recalled cribs were sold at IKEA stores in Canada and about 20,000 were sold in the United States.  The cribs were sold from October 2005 through June 2010 in both countries.

The four bolts that hold the mattress secure are not long enough. It can cause the mattress support to detach and collapse, creating a risk of entrapment and suffocation to a child in the crib. As of February 21, there hasn’t been any accidents or injuries reported.

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.

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.
