IKEA Issues Safety Gate Recall
IKEA is recalling several of their children's safety gates because it says the locking mechanism is unreliable. According to the Detroit News, the company is asking customers with any model of the Patrull safety gate to return them to an IKEA store as soon as possible for a full refund. (No proof of purchase is needed.)
IKEA says that they have received some reports of the gates opening unexpectedly and some children falling down the stairs because of the gates' malfunction. Click here to see some images from The Mirror of the recalled gates.
