IKEA Canada Recalls Two Of Their Safety Gates

Health Canada and IKEA Canada have released a joint recall of Patrull Klämma and Patrull Smidig safety gates

recall, recall alert, ikea, ikea recall, baby gate recall, Patrull Klämma, Patrull SmidigIKEA Canada is recalling two of their baby safety gates: Patrull Klämma and Patrull Smidig metal safety gates. Any gate with the date stamp 1510 (YYWW—Year & Week) or earlier have been recalled. The date can be found on a permanent label attached to the metal bar at the bottom of the safety gate.

When the gate is in use, the friction between the wall and the pressure-mounted safety gate is insufficient to keep the gate in position. This then poses a falling hazard. IKEA has received 18 incident reports worldwide, including four in Canada. Sadly, serious injuries have been reported in Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

Records show that approximately 17.035 of the Patrull Klämma and Patrull Smidig gates have been sold in Canada, with another 58,000 sold in the United States. They were sold from August 1995 to February 2015.

If you have an effected safety gate, stop using the gate. You can return it to any IKEA store for a full refund.
