According to reports, the child safety gates recall was announced on Thursday by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) – the federal regulator states the gates can open unexpectedly, posing a falling hazard to children and others.
The recall involves IKEA PATRULL, PATRULL FAST and PATRULL KLÄMMA safety gates and safety gate extensions. The gates and gate extensions are white and made of beech wood or steel and plastic.
The pressure-mounted gates open both inward and outward. IKEA stated that the locking mechanisms can open unexpectedly
IKEA has received 55 reports of incidents worldwide, including 10 injuries that resulted in two concussions. Four of the incidents were reported in the U.S.
The items in question were sold at IKEA stores for about 10 to 60 dollars per unit. The best thing for consumers to do in this situation is return the products immediately for a full refund.
