Cabinet Locks Recalled Due to Lock Failure

The Consumer Product Safety Commission recently reported that 900,000 Push ‘N Snap Cabinet Locks are being recalled as children can open the locks. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Young children can disengage the cabinet locks, allowing access to cabinet contents and posing the risk of injury, due to dangerous or unsafe items. The report indicates that DJG has received 200 reports of locks that did not adequately secure the cabinet, including reports of damaged locks. Of the reported incidents, the firm is aware of 140 children between the ages of 9 months and 5 years who were able to disengage the locks and gain access to the cabinet’s contents. In three of the reported incidents, the children who gained access swallowed or handled dishwashing detergent, window cleaner or oven cleaner, and were treated, observed and released from emergency treatment centers.

This item was sold at Bed Bath & Beyond and other retail stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com from January 2004 through February 2012 for between $2 and $4.
