Jan 13 (Reuters) - Swedish furniture retailer IKEA AB is recalling about 169,000 crib mattresses because babies can become trapped in a gap between the mattress and the crib, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Tuesday.

IKEA has had two reports of infants becoming entrapped, but they were unharmed, the agency said in a statement.
