What's underneath your kitchen or bathroom cabinets? Probably lots of things you don't want your children near.
That's why parents buy locks like these. But Safety 1st is recalling 900,000 Push N' Snap Cabinet Locks after numerous reports poured in to the CPSC. The manufacturer, Dorel Juvenile Group has received 200 reports of locks that did not adequately secure the cabinet.
According to the complaints:
- 140 children between the ages of 9 months and 5 years were able to disengage the locks
- 3 of those incidents the children who gained access to the cabinets swallowed or handled dishwashing detergent, window cleaner or oven cleaner and were taken to the emergency room.
Consumers are being asked to remove the locks and contact the company for a free replacement lock. In the meantime, remove poisonous products out of reach.
