You know those wooden baby gates you put at the top of the stairs to keep little ones from tumbling down? If you’ve got one made by Evenflo, read on, because the U.S. Consumer Product Safety folks just recalled 150,000 of them. Seems the slats on the gate break. Evenflo has received 142 reports of slats breaking – one child actually fell down the stairs, one fell down just one step, and 11 kids were hurt as they fell through the gate. The gates were sold at Toys R Us, Kmart, Burlington Baby Depot, Amazon and other retailer between October 2007 and now. Check the model number here, then contact Evenflo (the same link tells you how) for a replacement gate.
