IKEA recalls mattress because it doesn't meet flammability standards

IKEA is recalling one of its crib mattress models because it doesn't meet federal open flame standards and is a fire hazard.

The VYSSA SPELEVINK crib mattress is white with a blue piping around the edge, and measures 52 inches long and 27 1/2 inches wide, the Consumer Product Safety Commission says.

IKEA, in its recall notice, says testing showed the mattress is not compliant with federal flammability standards. They were sold at IKEA stores across the nation and online for about $100 – the commission says they've been available since 2000, but IKEA says they've been sold since 2010.

The safety commission says 38,400 mattresses are affected. There's an ID label attached to the mattress cover that includes the date and model name. Mattresses made after 2007 also have a federal tag at the foot of the product.

Anyone with a VYSSA SPELEVINK mattress is asked to stop using it, then return it to an IKEA store for a full refund. IKEA notes you don't need a proof of purchase to get the refund.

There have been no reported incidents regarding the mattress with this specific incident.

However, the mattress has already been the subject of two recalls in the past year. About 169,000 of them were recalled in January because the mattress could move in the crib, creating a gap that an infant could get trapped in. The recall was expanded in May to include more than 340,000 unites across the United States and Canada.

There had been two reports of infants becoming trapped in the manner described.

ConsumerAffairs says mattresses that were given as a replacement, as part of those earlier recalls, are included in this current recall.
