IKEA Announces Crib Recall
Consumers should immediately stop using IKEA SNIGLAR brand cribs, the U.S. and Canadian governments said Thursday.
In a joint statement released by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, the company has issued a recall of more than 26,000 cribs in North America. The four bolts provided to secure the mattress support are not long enough and may collapse.
Although no incidents have been reported, the statement urges parents to check the underside of their cribs immediately to see if the mattress support bolts extend through the nut. If not, consumers should contact IKEA for a free repair kit. Defective cribs can also be exchanged for new ones at IKEA stores.
About 20,000 cribs were sold in the U.S. and more than 6,000 in Canada. The cribs were sold from October 2005 through June 2010 at stores throughout North America.
