IKEA Recalls 26,000 Defective Cribs

Posted on Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011 at 4:00 pm    

IKEA has issued a voluntary recall of more than 26,000 defective cribs, and is offering a repair kit to fix the problem.

The furniture company issued a voluntary recall of their SNIGLAR brand cribs. The four bolts used to secure the mattress support are not long enough and can cause the crib to detach and collapse, according to the company. The fear is that the child could then become trapped or suffocate.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada released a joint statement urging parents to carefully examine the underside of their cribs and see if the bolts extend through the nut. If the bolt is not long enough, consumers should stop using the crib immediately. Parents can exchange their crib for anew one at an IKEA store or pickup a free repair kit.

No incidents of crib collapse have been reported, according to the statement.
