Are you at Risk? What to do next!
There should not be a gap larger than two fingers width between the crib and the mattress, if such a gap exists, the mattress is defective. Another way to check is to the measurements of the unit, as recalled mattresses are 52” x 27 ½ “. Finally, look for the identification label. Sultans and Vyssas made prior to May 4, 2014 have been recalled.
In the event that there is a gap of more than 2” between the crib and the mattress, discontinue using it IMMEDIATELY. Bring the mattress to any IKEA and receive an exchange or a full refund.
