Safety 1st Push 'N Snap child safety cabinet locks recalled
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling Safety 1st Push 'N Snap Cabinet Locks.
The commission says it has received 200 reports that the child safety locks don't secure properly, meaning kids can get into the cabinets. Damaged locks have also been reported.
There have been three reported cases of children handling and even swallowing hazardous materials because the locks did not work.
The recall includes locks with model numbers 48391 and 48842 manufactured between January 2004 and November 2010. The model numbers are printed on the back of the product and on the packaging, and the date of the manufacture is embossed on the back.
Push 'N Snap locks are produced by Dorel Juvenile Group (DJG) and are sold at Bed Bath & Beyond and other retail stores and online at Amazon.com for between $2 and $4.
The CPSC advises consumers who bought the product to remove the recalled locks from cabinets and contact DJG for a free replacement with model numbers HS158 or HS159.
You can contact DJG at (866) 762-3212 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit www.djgusa.com.
