At IKEA, the safety and security of our customers and co-workers is a
top priority. Therefore, IKEA recommends that all customers should stop
using the crib immediately and check the crib. If the mattress support
bolts extend through the nut, the bolts are the proper length and the
crib is not included in the repair action. If the bolt does not extend
through the nut, the crib is included in the recall for repair. Contact

alternative, safe sleep environment for the child.
