IKEA Recalls SPELEVINK Crib Mattresses For A Second Time: Now It’s Flammability

(CPSC)(CPSC)



If you happen to own IKEAs VYSSA SPELEVINK crib mattress, that means youve already missed two recalls of your kids mattress. Those were for potential entrapment: it was possible for the mattress to shift so that a child could become trapped between the mattress and crib frame. Now the Consumer Products Safety Commission reports another risk of this product: flammability.

Depending on what source you check, mattresses dating back to the year 2000 or 2010 are part of this recall: the CPSC gives the earlier date, and IKEA gives the later one. However, its the CPSCs duty to report that the SPELEVINK mattress failed an open-flame test, and the mattresses that still happen to be circulating can be brought back to IKEA for a refund.

Perhaps you brought back your mattress during one of those previous recalls in January or May. Bad news: if you got a SPELEVINK replacement mattress, that mattress has now been recalled. This time around, customers get refunds instead of new mattresses.

If you have any questions about the recall or whether your mattress is part of it, you can contact IKEA at 888-966-4532 or visit their official recall page.
