Evenflo is recalling 150,000 wooden gates that block stairways from young children.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the slats on Evenflo Top-of-Stair Plus gates can break or detach, allowing children to access the stairs. The company has received 142 reports of broken or detached slats, including three reports of children who breached the gate and gained access to the stairs.
The Mexican-made gates were sold online and by stores nationwide, including Toys "R" Us, Burlington Baby Depot and Kmart. An additional 33,000 of these gates are being recalled in Canada.
To obtain a free replacement gate, contact Evenflo at 800-233-5921.
