Ikea Home Furnishing is recalling 26,000 baby cribs due to the fact that the four screws provided with some of the cribs to secure the mattress are not long enough which can cause the mattress support to detach and collapse creating a risk of entrapment and suffocation to the child inside of the crib. The cribs are marketed by Ikea under the name Sniglar cribs. The USCPS stated that the recall is voluntary and the recall involves Sniglar non-drop side full size cribs with model number 60091931.
Over the last year, there have been a substantial number of recalls of infant and child products. For an up to date notification, I urge you to go to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission homepage which lists the recalls by date of issue. Also of significance is that on February 11, 2010, Britax Child Safety announced the recall of approximately 14,000 Britax Blink umbrella strollers made in China due to the fact that the stroller’s hinge poses a fingertip amputation and laceration to children when the stroller is being unfolded or opened. Additionally on January 20, 2011 approximately 1.5 million strollers made by Graco Children’s Products were recalled after reports of children’s fingers were being cut when the canopy was opened or closed. These recalled strollers are Graco’s Passage, Alano, and Spree strollers and Travel Systems.
