Recall: Safety 1st Stair Gates
Feb. 4, 2009: The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (”CPSC”) has announced a voluntary recall of approximately 100,000 Safety 1st SmartLight Stair Gates (model number 42111 and manufactured before December 31, 2007).
According to CPSC, the gates are voluntarily recalled because “The hinges that hold the stair gate in place can break, posing a fall hazard to children if the gate is placed at the top of the stairs.”
Consumers are advised to stop using the gate and contact the manufacturer.
