20K IKEA Cribs Recalled Due To Entrapment, Choking Hazard

LOS ANGELES (AP) — About 20,000 SNIGLAR cribs in the U.S. and 6,000 in Canada have been recalled from IKEA Home Furnishings of Conshohocken, Pa., because the four bolts provided with some of the cribs to secure the mattress support are not long enough.

This can cause the mattress support to detach and collapse, creating a risk of entrapment and suffocation to a child in the crib.

The recall involves SNIGLAR non-drop-side, full-size cribs with model number 60091931.

For more information, call IKEA at 888-966-4532 or visit the company’s website at www.ikea-usa.com.
