IKEA recalls 80,000 baby gates
IKEA is recalling 80,000 baby gates because they can come unintentionally unlocked, posing a risk of falls and related injuries, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced Thursday.
Ten injuries have been reported, including two concussions, as well as cuts and bruises, the CPSC said.
The recalled gates are the PATRULL safety gate and extension, the PATRULL FAST safety gate, and the PATRULL KLAMMA safety gate and extension. The PATRULL KLAMMA was first recalled by IKEA in May because of reports it was coming unmounted from the wall and not staying in place. At the time, CPSC reported 18 such incidents, including three in which children fell down stairs and were injured.
These items were sold online from the store’s website, and in U.S. stores, between August 1995 and June 2016 for $10 to $60. They were manufactured in Denmark.
IKEA advised customers who have these gates to immediately stop using them and return them to the store for a full refund.
