Stokke, in conjunction with the CPSC, is recalling about 1,000 Sleepi Crib Foam Mattresses because the mattress does not fit cribs properly and this poses a risk of a young child becoming trapped in the gap between the crib and the mattress.
Only oval shaped Sleepi cribs with foam mattresses sold under the following model numbers are the subject of this recall: 660321, 660320, 660301,660305, 660318, 652268, 652269, 652246, 652247 and 652248. The cribs were sold in a variety of colors, including white, walnut, natural, cherry and whitewash. The model number can be found on the packaging and underside of the crib.
As of now, no injuries have been reported to the Stokke company. The product was sold at retail stores all over the U.S. as well as on the Internet from September 2006 through March 2007. The CPSC and Stokke are urging parents to remove these mattresses from their children’s cribs immediately.
