The Evenflo company is recalling 150,000 wooden baby gates after the Consumer Product Safety Commission has said that the slats on the gates can break or detach, allowing children past – giving them access so the stairs they are blocking.
An additional 33,000 of these gates are being recalled in Canada.
The company has already received 142 reports of broken or detached slats.
Check your baby gate to make sure it is not an Evenflo wooden gate. These gates were sold nationwide at stores like Toys R Us, Kmart and Burlington Baby Depot.
You can receive a free replacement gate from Evenflo if you call their customer service department at 1-800-233-5921.
