    IKEA is recalling some 169,000 crib mattresses that they say pose a potential danger to infants.

    The recall by the Swedish furniture retailer came in response to two reports from customers that their infants were trapped in a gap between the mattress and the crib, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Tuesday. The agency said the toddlers were not injured.

    “Consumers should inspect the recalled mattress by making sure there is no gap larger than the width of two fingers between the ends of the crib and the mattress,” the CPSC said in a statement. “If any gap is larger, customers should immediately stop using the recalled mattresses and return it to any IKEA store for an exchange or a full refund.”

    The mattresses that are on recall are the IKEA Vyssa style with model names Vackert, Vinka, Spelevink, Sloa and Slummer. They were made in Mexico and manufactured on or before May 4, 2014, the company said.

    The mattresses were sold at IKEA stores in the United States and online from August 2010 to May 2014 for about $100.
