Photo from EvenfloAnother day, another safety recall. The recall is especially disconcerting if you have a new walker or aggressive crawler in your household.
Check your baby gates as 142 injuries have been reported as the Evenflo Top-of-the-Stairs gates splinter, or slats detach causing falls, bumps and bruises in children.
The exact models were manufactured from October 2007 through July 2009. They include the Evenflo model 10502 and Evenflo model 10512 Top-of-Stair Plus Wood Gates.
The model number can be found on the bottom of the gate. Check your wood gates, and call Evenflo at 1(800) 233-5921 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday to receive a newer model to replace the recalled gates.
