Posted on August 2, 2016 2:50 pm under Defective Child Care Products

Following reports of ten injuries, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced that IKEA is recalling 80 thousand baby gates. The products have the ability to unintentionally unlock, causing a fall risk that has lead so far to two concussions and several cuts and bruises.

Description: PATRULL safety gate and extension, the PATRULL FAST safety gate, and the PATRULL KLAMMA safety gate and extension.
Problem:  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.
Stores: store’s website and in U.S. stores, between August 1995 and June 2016.
Origin:  Denmark

IKEA has asked customers who have these gates to return them to the store immediately for a refund.
