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:

  1. Let new mattresses air for 72 hours after unpacking. It takes 3-4 days for the mattress to assume its proper shape and volume,
  2. Remove all bedding, for example fitted sheets,
  3. 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.

Please note that the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act prohibits recalled products from being redistributed, sold or even given away in Canada.
