What you should do
Consumers should check the gap between the IKEA SULTAN crib mattress and the side and end of the crib. If the gap is greater than 3 cm, consumers should immediately stop using the affected product and return it to any IKEA store for an exchange or a full refund.
How to measure:
- 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,
- Push the mattress into one of the corners of the crib and measure the gap between the mattress and the crib's side and end using a measuring tape. Any gap should be less than 3 cm.
For more information, consumers may contact IKEA Canada by telephone toll-free at 1-800-661-9807 or visit IKEA's website.
