Argos has issued a recall for some Cuggl brand baby gates after tests showed they were faulty.
The catalogue company said customers should stop using them and return them to one of their stores for a refund.
Tests showed some gates failed safety standards for durability.
The firm said some gates’ automatic closure feature did not always work and that some gaps between metal bars were too wide, “which may result in a child getting trapped”.
Argos said some of the gates could break “under high impact”, such as regular banging or kicking of the gate.
“Please be assured that no other safety gate is affected by this issue,” Argos said in a statement. “We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
