(May 12, 2015) – Two different baby gates and a Police Press and Go Toy were recalled for potential safety hazards on Tuesday.
The baby gates recalled were both sold at IKEA, and they were sold nationwide and online at www.ikea-usa.com from August 1995 through February 2015 for about $35.
The friction between the wall and the pressure-mounted safety gate is insufficient to hold the gate in its intended position, posing a fall hazard. In addition, the lower metal bar can be a tripping hazard.
IKEA recommends consumers stop using the safety gate and return it to IKEA for a full refund. More specific details about the safety gate models can be found here.
A child’s toy was also recalled Tuesday. The hat on Police Press and Go Toy Vehicles can detach from the policeman’s head and pose a choking hazard to young children.
The toys were sold at specialty toy and gift stores nationwide from April 2010 through April 2015 for about $5. More specific information about the recall can be found here.
