This is a late post, however, I want to reach as many mothers and families as possible with Recalls and Alerts, no matter the date of the original notification. I feel sometimes, these reports are not passed along enough and many families go without the necessary information.

 Ikea Crib Mattress Recall

Now, this one is a bit tricky for me. The rationale behind the recall is due to the mattresses now being discovered as posing “fire hazards“. This statement and information evoked a slight bittersweet feeling, because although I commend ANY company for issuing recall alerts for their products and offer to fully refund and exchange the item for a more comparable one, I can’t help but feel slightly uneasy at the mention of fire retardants. Mostly because of the chemical agents that are used pose an even larger threat to the health and safety of ourselves and our precious little babies. The chemicals used are known carcinogens. I will not play the devil’s advocate and say which would you prefer to be the result of anyone’s demise ( cancer or a fire ) however, I feel it is plausible enough and packed with a sufficient amount of evidence to say that we cannot simply place a band-aid on an ongoing issue of toxins and chemical exposure that not only do we, a society face, but our young and defenseless children. I cannot help but cringe at the sight of my baby girl wanting to crawl around onto the living room carpet and pull herself up onto the couch. The amount of poisons and toxins that she is surrounded with prompted me to create an entire play area in our guest room until I could sort out the details of the origin of our living room furniture. It baffles me how an industry who’s sole purpose is motivated by profit, has such walls and layers of protection and yet consumers have zero and next to nothing when it comes to education, about the products that are being used in their homes.

Nevertheless, staying true to the #ConcernedMama in me, I shall inform everyone I can. The recall pertains to the Vyssa Spelevink mattresses, that were sold at Ikea stores and online from October 2000 through May 2014.
