(Newser) – The Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling 80,000 Ikea baby gates after reports of injured children around the world. Patrull, Patrull Fast, and Patrull Klamma baby gates sold between 1995 and 2016 can come unlocked unexpectedly and cause falls and other injuries, CNN reports. The gates, sold at Ikea between 1995 and 2016, have resulted in 55 reported incidents around the world, including four in the US. So far, 10 injuries—cuts, bruises, and concussions—have been tied to the faulty gates. The Patrull Klamma gate was first recalled in May after three children were hurt falling down stairs. A full refund for the baby gates is available at Ikea. (Read more recall stories.)
