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.
Some of the crib mattresses can measure smaller than the minimum 27 1/4 inch (approximately 69 cm) width requirement for cribs in the US, which creates a gap between the mattress and crib side rails of greater than 3 cm, 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.
No incidents or injuries were reported to Health Canada.
Approximately 260 Simmons Kids Crib Mattresses were sold in Canada.
