Health Canada, the United States Product Safety Commission (US CPSC) and IKEA have jointly recalled PATRULL KLÄMMA and PATRULL SMIDIG safety gates with a date stamp of 1510 (YYWW- Year & Week) or earlier. The stamp label can be found at the bottom of the gate in the following models:
Model - Dimensions - Colour - Product Number
The pressure-mounted gate is not secure when positioned against the wall, causing a fall risk. The lower metal bar could also pose a tripping hazard.
Of the 18 incidents reported to IKEA worldwide, four occurred in Canada. Serious injuries resulted in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark.
Customers should stop using the recalled gate immediately and return it to an IKEA store for a full refund. Gate extensions for the PATRULL KLÄMMA and PATRULL SMIDIG models should also be returned for a full refund.
For further information, customers can contact IKEA Canada toll-free at 1-800-661-9807 or via IKEA's website.
From August 1995 to February 2015, approximately 17,035 of the PATRULL KLÄMMA and PATRULL SMIDIG safety gates were sold in Canada, and approximately 58,000 in the United States.
