The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with IKEA Home Furnishings, has announced a voluntary recall of SNIGLAR cribs. The four bolts provided with some SNIGLAR cribs to secure the mattress support are not long enough. As a result, the mattress support can detach and collapse, creating a risk of entrapment, suffocation or other injury to the child in the crib.
This recall includes about 20,000 cribs sold in the United States and 6,000 in Canada. The cribs were sold exclusively at IKEA stores nationwide from October 2005 through June 2010 for about $80. The cribs are 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.
No injuries have been reported.
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.
