Less than a month after IKEA made headlines for recalling 29 million chests and dressers over safety concerns; another recall has been announced, this time, for safety gates.

Previously, in May of 2015, the PATRULL KLAMMA safety gates were recalled. 

This recall includes 80,000 IKEA PATRULL, PATRULL FAST and PATRULL KLÄMMA safety gates and safety gate extensions. 

The CDC says the locking mechanism on the gates can open unexpectedly and they pose a falling hazard to children and other consumers. 

There have been 55 reports of incidents worldwide, including two that resulted in concussions, and cuts and bruising. Four of those incidents were reported in the U.S. 

If you own one of the recalled gates or extensions, return the product to your nearest IKEA for a full refund.
