NEW YORK (MainStreet) — Another day, another round of kids’ recalls. IKEA, Disney and Burlington Basket Company are among the manufacturers pulling their children’s products from the store shelves this week.
IKEA SNIGLAR Cribs
IKEA is voluntarily recalling about 26,000 SNIGLAR cribs sold in the U.S. and Canada because some of the bolts provided for the mattress support are not long enough. This can cause the mattress to detach and collapse, creating a risk of entrapment and suffocation. No injuries have been reported.
The SNIGLAR non-drop-side, full-size crib has the model number 60091931 and was sold at IKEA stores nationwide from October 2005 through June 2010 ($80).
Parents who own this product are advised to check the crib. If the mattress’ support bolts extend through the nut, the bolts are the proper length and the crib is not part of the recall. If the bolt does not extend through the nut, owners should contact IKEA for a free repair kit and find an alternate, safe sleep environment for the child until the proper bolts are in place.
Consumers can contact IKEA toll-free at (888) 966-4532 anytime, or visit the company website for additional information.
Disney Light-Up Watches
Walt Disney Parks and Resorts (Stock Quote: DIS) is voluntarily recalling about 1,200 Buzz Lightyear, Tinker Bell and Lightning McQueen light-up watches after receiving reports that six children experienced skin irritation or burning sensations while wearing the watch.
The watches were sold in DisneyWorld Resort stores in Florida and California and on board the Disney cruise ships from November 2010 through January 2011 ($30). They were also sold at Disney’s Earport Shop and The Magic of Disney Shop in the Orlando airport. Their tracking code is K130-6377-7-10187.
