Recall on IKEA Children’s Safety Gate
Furniture Giant Ikea is recalling a children’s safety gate because the locking mechanism is not reliable and could result in injury to children.
The company says customers with any model of Patrull safety gates to stop using them immediately and return them for a full refund.
The company received reports of gates opening unexpectedly, causing children to fall down stairs, with medical attention needed in some cases.
Ikea has more than 300 stores in 27 countries. It said the company has zero tolerance regarding child safety and that the faulty gates had opened despite “approved tests to applicable standards.”
