ALERT: IKEA Recalls Cribs; Entrapment & Suffocation Concerns

Conshohocken, PAName of product: SNIGLAR cribs
Units: About 20,000 in the United States and 6,000 in Canada
Distributor: IKEA Home Furnishings, of Conshohocken, Pa.
Hazard: The four bolts provided with some SNIGLAR cribs to secure the mattress support are not long enough. This can cause the mattress support to detach and collapse, creating a risk of entrapment and suffocation to a child in the crib.
Incidents/Injuries: None reported
Description:  This recall involves 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.
Sold exclusively at: IKEA stores nationwide from October 2005 through June 2010 for about $80.
Manufactured in: Romania
Remedy: 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, such as a bassinet, play yard or toddler bed depending on the child's age.
Consumer Contact: For additional information, contact IKEA toll-free at (888) 966-4532 anytime, or visit the firm's website at www.ikea-usa.com.
