Ikea Canada is recalling nearly 64,000 crib mattresses because of the risk of infants getting pinned by a gap between the mattress and crib, the company says.
The voluntary recall comes after the Swedish furniture company received 10 reports of “a potential gap” between the Vyssa mattress and the crib. Health Canada says it has received one report of a problem from a consumer.
The gap between that specific type of mattress and the crib can be more than three centimetres and create the safety hazard for infants, the company says. If customers measure the gap without any bedding on the mattress and find it more than three centimetres, they should stop using the mattress and return it to any Ikea store.
