PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — IKEA has expanded its recall of crib mattresses due to an entrapment risk, and a popular toy company has recalled one of their products for unsafe levels of lead.

The recall expanded by IKEA involves a different model and more than 100,000 more mattresses.

Sultan and Vyssa crib mattresses are being recalled because they could create a gap between the mattress and crib ends larger than allowed by federal regulations, posing an entrapment hazard to infants.

Approximately 300,000 Vyssa crib mattresses were recalled back in January.

The expansion now includes 131,000 Sultan crib mattresses. The recalled mattresses were manufactured on May 4, 2014, which can be found on the identification label attached to the mattress cover.

Consumers should stop using the recalled mattress and inspect it by making sure there is no gap larger than the width of two fingers between the ends of the crib and the mattress. If the gap is larger, customers should return it for a full refund.

Cycle Gear is also recalling semi-truck and motorcycle toys for containing excessive levels of lead, which is a violation of the federal standard.

Wheelies semi-truck with six motorcycles and push-along motorcycle with rider are the names of the recalled products. They were sold nationwide through November and December of 2014 for $10.

Consumers should take the toys away from children and contact the company for a full refund.
