29 June 2016

IKEA has warned customers that the Patrull and Klamma gates should not be used and should be returned to their nearest IKEA store where a full refund will be issued, even without proof of purchase.
 
The recall is thought to be issued following reports of injuries to children where parents has the Patrull of Klamma gates fitted in their homes. Thousands of gates have been sold worldwide.
 
IKEA's Maria Thorn comments that they have a 'zero tolerance policy regarding child safety' and that a third party investigation showed that the gates may pose 'a risk for small children', despite approved tests to applicable standards.
 
Consumer law and product liability lawyers at Leigh Day commend IKEAS's swift response however comment that 'a child's safety is paramount to any parent and any injury caused by a product aimed to prevent harm to children must be manufactured and tested to the highest standards. There is no room for error as the potential consequences can be devastating.'
