— -- IKEA has announced a recall for 80,000 baby gates.

Experts say the gates can unlock by themselves and lead to falls. IKEA has received 55 reports of incidents worldwide, including at least 10 injuries that resulted in cuts and bruising and two concussions.

The recalled gates include the Patrull Safety Gate and Extension, the Patrull Fast Safety Gate and the Patrull Klamma Safety Gate and Extension.

IKEA lists the hazard as the locking mechanism which can open unexpectedly, posing a fall hazard to children and other consumers.

Customers can return the gates for a full refund.
