Child safety gates recalled over entrapment, strangulation risk

By Amy Davis - Reporter/Consumer Expert

More than 25,000 safety gates are being recalled due to entrapment and strangulation hazards to young children.

The recall is for Madison Mill 23 and 25 foldaway expandable safety gates. A young child's neck can fit into the "V" shaped opening along the top edge of the gate, posing entrapment and strangulation hazards.

Young children can also pass under the gate allowing access to restricted areas, like stairs. The gates were sold at hardware stores nationwide.

If you have one, contact Madison Mill for instructions on receiving a full refund.

You can call them at 877-220-4705 from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or email at tom.mckelvey@madisonmill.com.
