All recalls are important to take note of, but ones related to baby products are often of the greatest concern. And IKEA’s expansion of a six-month old recall to include an additional 150,000 crib mattresses because of the risk of entrapment would fall into that category.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced today that IKEA will add four types of SULTANA mattresses to its January recall, bringing the total number of mattresses recalled to roughly 300,000.

IKEA initially recalled five styles of VYSSA mattresses after receiving two reports of infants becoming entrapped between the mattress and an end of the crib. Fortunately, the children were removed from the situation without injury.

The newly recalled mattresses include the BLUNDA, DROMMA, SNARKA and SUSSA models that are 52 inches long and 27 ½ inches wide and were manufactured on May 4, 2014 or earlier.

Affected mattresses can be identified by a label on the cover that has the manufacturer date in Month-DD-YY format or YY-WW format and the SULTAN or VYSSA model name, the company says in a statement.

Consumers should inspect the recalled mattress by making sure there is no gap larger than the width of two fingers between the ends of the crib and the mattress. If any gap is larger, customers should immediately stop using the recalled mattress and return it to any IKEA store for an exchange or full refund.

The mattresses sold for about $20 to $100 at IKEA stores throughout the U.S. and online from October 2000 to May 2014.

Customers with questions or concerns can call IKEA at (888)966-4532.
