Health Canada posted a voluntary recall notice about the mattresses on its website Tuesday, noting that "a gap between the mattress and the side or end of the crib that is greater than 3 centimetres poses an entrapment hazard for an infant."
Health Canada advises anyone with a VYSSA mattress from IKEA to remove all bedding and fitted sheets from the product, then measure it and make sure the gap around the mattress is no more than three centimetres. If it is, "consumers should immediately stop using the affected product and return it to any IKEA store for an exchange or a full refund," Health Canada says.
Mattresses affected by the recall were made before May 4, 2014 and include the following model names:- VACKERT
The mattresses were all manufactured in Mexico and sold between 2010 and the date of the recall notice.
