IKEA is urging customers who have bought the PATRULL safety gate to immediately stop using it and to bring it back to any IKEA store for a full refund.

IKEA say they have received customer reports where PATRULL safety gates have opened unexpectedly and children have fallen down stairs.

Some of the incidents have required medical attention.

Maria Thörn, Acting Business Area Manager at Children’s IKEA said:

“A third party investigation has shown that the locking mechanism is not reliable, posing a risk for small children, despite approved tests to applicable standards.” the compnay says.

At IKEA, we have a zero tolerance regarding child safety. We want to offer safe products and we believe that children are the most important people in the world. Whenever we are made aware of a possible safety issue with our products, we investigate thoroughly.

We cannot accept that there could be a risk of injury while playing and as an immediate and precautionary action we have decided to recall all PATRULL safety gates.

IKEA is not willing to risk children’s safety and therefore urges all customers that have a PATRULL safety gate to immediately stop using it and to bring it back to an IKEA store for a full refund, IKEA apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.”

More Info: PATRULL safety gate, PATRULL KLÄMMA and PATRULL FAST have been sold on all IKEA markets. Proof of purchase (receipt) is not required. For more information, please contact IKEA on 0203 645 0010
