Product description

This recall involves the IKEA SNIGLAR crib measuring 70 cm x 132 cm, model number 502.485.41 with the manufacturing date code of 15342.  The affected cribs are beech wood in colour, with rounded slats around the whole frame.

Hazard identified

Health Canada’s sampling and evaluation program has determined that these cribs do not meet the requirements of the Cribs, Cradles and Bassinets Regulations in Canada.  Specifically, the slats may detach from the top or bottom rail, creating a gap.  If this occurs a child can become entrapped in the crib, fall or be cut by the loose slats.

Neither Health Canada nor IKEA Canada has received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of these cribs in Canada.

Number sold

Approximately 175 units of the recalled cribs were sold online and at IKEA stores in Canada.

Time period sold

The recalled cribs were sold in Canada from August 2015 to September 2016.

Place of origin

Manufactured in Romania.
