Expandable safety gates recalled for strangulation risk

Posted at 8:37 AM, Jun 08, 2017

More than 25,000 foldaway expandable safety gates are under a recall notice after reports that they could trap or danger a child. 

A young child's neck could fit in the top edge of the Madison Mill-branded safety gates, leading to a possibility of them being trapped or strangled. 

The two affected products are Madison Mill 23 Foldaway Gate and Madison Mill 25 Foldaway Gate. Anybody using one of the gates should stop and contact Madison Mill at 877-220-4705 to get a refund.
