Igloo Recalls Coolers After Boy Gets Locked Inside
Igloo is recalling coolers after a boy gets locked inside.
A 5 year-old Florida boy crawled into an igloo cooler. The lid closed and locked but luckily his parents heard his cries and pulled him safely out, according to Fox 13. The family notified Igloo, who issued a recall on the coolers.
"We stand behind the quality of our products, and because your safety and satisfaction are our top priority, we are voluntarily recalling the Igloo Marine Elite coolers."
The problem is with the stainless steel latch that the company says could "inadvertently close where a person could potentially become locked inside."
