Health Canada’s sampling and evaluation program has determined that these gates do not meet the Canadian safety requirements for expansion gates under Canadian law.
An opening located at the top of the gate is wider than permitted as specified in the Expansion Gates and Expandable Enclosures Regulations, thereby creating an entrapment and strangulation hazard to young children.
Neither Health Canada nor Madison Mill Inc. has received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of these gates in Canada.
Approximately 68,410 units of the recalled gates were sold in Canada at various retailers and on-line.
Time period sold
The recalled gates were sold from January 2013 to October 2016.
Place of origin
Manufactured in the United States.
