Hazard identified

Health Canada’s sampling and evaluation program has determined that these gates do not meet the Canadian safety requirements for gates.  Specifically the gate’s stop clip may become detached.  The stop clip is a small part and therefore poses a choking hazard to young children.

Approximately 13,785 units of the recalled gates were sold in Canada at various retailers in Canada.
