IKEA Recall For Patrull Pressure Mounted Safety Gates
IKEA issued a recall for three pressure mounted safety gates and their extension pieces within the Patrull line. These gates are used in doorways to protect children and animals from entering unsafe areas. The issues with the gate is that the pressure mounting is not enough to hold the safety gate in place and when pressed against can lead to a falling accident. There is also concern the lower metal bar is a tripping hazard. The issues was recalled after IKEA received 55 injury reports, 3 of which where the safety gate had failed and children fell down staircases.
