IKEA SNIGLAR Cribs Recalled Due To Entrapment & Suffocation Hazards
Its Thursday and in the tradition of posting a recall, every. single. day., we figured we wouldn’t disappoint you with missing yet another, this time from IKEA. Yes, I can’t believe it either!
Health Canada, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and IKEA have issued a recall on SNIGLAR cribs due to issues with the mattress support. Around 20,000 in the US and 6,000 cribs in Canada, all distributed by IKEA Home Furnishings were involved in the recall.
The problem: Four bolts provided with some of the SNIGLAR, non-drop-side full-size cribs are not long enough to secure the mattress support. Because of this, the mattress support can detach and collapse causing a risk of suffocation and entrapment to a child in the crib. So far, no injuries have been reported.
The natural/light colored SNIGLAR crib was sold exclusively at IKEA stores from October 2005 to June 2010 for about $80. Cribs have the model number 60091931 printed on a label attached to the mattress support.
If you have one of these cribs, IKEA is suggesting you stop using it immediately and check the bolts. If the mattress support bolts extend through the nut, they are the proper length and the crib is NOT included in the recall. If they don’t extend through the nut, contact IKEA for a free repair kit: toll-free at (888) 966-4532 anytime, or www.ikea-usa.com.
