Ikea recalls baby mattresses in US citing entrapment risk

STOCKHOLM (AP) — Furniture retailer Ikea says it’s recalling 169,000 baby crib mattresses in the U.S. and Canada after receiving two reports of infants getting trapped between the mattress and the end panels.

Ikea said the children were not injured.

The recall applies to mattresses used for Ikea’s Vyssa-style cribs, including the models Vacker, Vinka, Spelevink, Sloa and Slummer.

Ikea spokeswoman Daniela Rogosic said Thursday that some of the mattresses were too short for the crib, posing a risk of entrapment.

Rogosic said the recall only affects North American stores because the mattress supplier in question had not been used in other markets.
