Child Product Recalls

Safe Kids Worldwide has recently published the list of the most up to date child product recalls. Topping the list for the month of June is the Madison Mill 23 and 25 Foldaway Gate. According to the recall, the danger for this product is that a young child’s neck can fit into the “V” shaped opening along the top edge of the gate, posing entrapment and strangulation hazards to young children. Also, young children can pass under the gate allowing access to restricted areas, such as stairs. This recall affects approximately 25,180 units (In addition about 68,400 were sold in Canada). Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled gates and contact Madison Mill for instructions on receiving a full refund.  Please follow the link to get the full details on this recall as well as a complete list of current recalls. Bellevue Fire Department thanks you and reminds you to make it a safe day!
