(September 8, 2015) – IKEA launched a recall of their VYSSA SPELEVINK crib mattresses, and they’re urging customers to stop using them immediately.

It was discovered that the VYSSA SPELEVINK mattress has shown non-compliance with the federal open flame standard for mattresses.

This means they pose a fire hazard.

Consumers can return the mattress to any IKEA store for a full refund. Proof of purchase is not required.

Recalled mattresses are 52 inches long and 27 ½ inches wide. They are white with a blue edge and have an identification label attached to the mattress cover with the name VYSSA SPELEVINK. The federal tag is located near the foot of the mattress.

They were sold at IKEA stores nationwide and online at http://www.ikea-usa.com since 2010 for about $100.
