IKEA recalls VYSSA crib mattresses due to risk of entrapment
IKEA VYSSA crib mattresses are designed to be used with IKEA cribs to ensure a snug and safe sleeping environment for infants and young children.
A gap between mattress and crib ends can pose an entrapment hazard for an infant. IKEA 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.
This recall applies to any VYSSA mattress with date of manufacture May 04 2014 or earlier. Identification can be found on a permanent label attached to the mattress cover, showing Date of Manufacture Month-DD-YYYY and Model: VYSSA name.
Consumers should verify that their crib mattress has the correct length. Measure a possible gap by removing all bedding, for example fitted sheets, and then make 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.
It is recommended that only IKEA fitted crib sheets are used with VYSSA crib mattresses.
Proof of purchase is not required to receive an exchange or a full refund for the return.
VYSSA crib mattresses have been sold in the United States since August 2010.
