Some of the mattresses can measure smaller than the minimum width requirement for cribs, creating a gap between the mattress and some crib side rails, posing an entrapment hazard to infants.
This recall involves about 20,000 Simmons Kids crib mattresses. The mattresses are open-coil crib mattresses manufactured between July 1, 2006, and March 23, 2008. There is a color label attached to the top or side of the mattress that has one of 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
There is also a law tag sewn into the edge of the mattress that has the date of manufacture and in most cases will contain one of the following model numbers:
Pottery Barn Kids and nursery furniture retailers from July 2006 through May 2008 for between $100 and $150.
What To Do:
Stop using the mattresses immediately if the width measures less than 27 1/4 inches and contact Simmons Kids to receive a free replacement mattress.
