The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Simmons Kids, today announced a voluntary recall of about 20,000 Simmons Kids Crib Mattresses because some of the crib mattresses can measure smaller than the 27 1/4 inch minimum width requirement for cribs, creating a gap between the mattress and crib side rails, posing an entrapment hazard to infants.
Simmons Kids and CPSC have received one report of a 6-month old baby becoming wedged between the mattress and crib’s frame. The baby was removed from the crib by the parent without injury.
The recalled mattresses involve open coil crib mattresses manufactured between July 1, 2006 and March 23, 2008 with a color label attached to the top or side of the mattress that has the following model names:
- Pottery Barn Kids by Simmons Kids Lullaby
- Simmons Kids Slumber Time Evening Star Luxury Firm
- Simmons Kids Baby Mattress Series 400
- Simmons Kids Baby Mattress 234 Coil Count
The crib mattresses also have a law tag that is sewn into the edge of the mattress. The law tag has the date of manufacture and in most cases will contain one of the following model numbers: H59044.15.0014, M59082.15.0002, M59027.15.0002 or M59065.15.0006. Pocketed Coils® and Simmons Kids or Simmons Juvenile Products crib mattresses manufactured before July 1, 2006 or after March 23, 2008 are not included in the recall.
Consumers should measure the width of their mattress using a reliable measuring device, such as a yard stick or tape measure, by removing all outer coverings, placing mattress on floor and measuring the width near the middle, from the outside edge of the tape binding to the opposite side of the mattress.
Consumers should immediately stop using the mattress if it measures less than 27 1/4 inches and contact Simmons Kids to receive a free replacement mattress. For additional information, contact Simmons Kids at (800) 810-8611 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET, Monday through Thursday, and between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. ET, on Friday or visit the firm’s Web site at www.simmonskids.com
