IKEA Recalls to Repair Cribs Due to Mattress Support Collapse; Cribs Pose Entrapment and Suffocation Hazards
About 20,000 SNIGLAR cribs sold sold exclusively at IKEA stores nationwide are being recalled due to mattress collapse. 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.
This recall involves SNIGLAR non-drop-side, full-size cribs with model number 60091931 and were sold at IKEA from October 2005 through June 2010 for about $80.
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.
