IKEA Canada has issued a precautionary recall on its SULTAN crib mattresses.
The Swedish furniture giant says there hasn’t been any reported incidents or injuries as a result of the mattresses, but customers are being urged to measure the gap between the mattress and crib to ensure the gap is not greater than 3 cm. The recall is being initiated as a result of one SULTAN crib mattress being found to be non-compliant.
How to measure gap:
- Let new mattresses air for 72 hours after unpacking. It takes 3-4 days for the mattress to assume its proper shape and volume.
- Remove all bedding, for example fitted sheets.
- Check any gap using a measuring tape.
- There should not be a gap greater than 3 cm when the mattress is pushed firmly against any side of the crib
