IKEA has issued a voluntary and precautionary recall of more than 26,000 defective cribs.
According to a joint release by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, four of the bolts that come with the company’s SNIGLAR brand cribs are not long enough and can cause the mattress support to detach and collapse. If the mattress support detaches, it is possible that a child could become trapped or suffocate.
Consumers are urged to carefully examine the underside of their cribs and check to see if the mattress support bolts extend through the nut. If a bolt is not long enough, consumers should stop using the crib immediately and exchange their crib for a new one at an IKEA store or pick up a free repair kit.
No reports of cribs collapsing have been reported.
