The CPSC has recalled 900,000 child safety cabinet locks that don’t do the job.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling 900,000 child safety cabinet locks that don’t keep kids out of cabinets. Nearly 1 million child safety cabinet locks have been recalled because they don’t lock cabinets and won’t work for child-proofing your home.

Three children went to the emergency room after locks failed and they drank or handled toxic cleaners. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Dorel Juvenile Group, has recalled 900,000 Safety 1st Push ‘N Snap Cabinet Locks, which wrap around cabinet door knobs and handles.

The company has received 140 reports that children between ages 9 months and 5 years have been able to disengage the locks and gain access to the cabinet’s contents. In three of the incidents, children went to the emergency room after they opened cabinets and swallowed or handled dishwashing detergent, window cleaner, and oven cleaner. No fatalities were reported.

The CPSC says consumers should immediately remove the recalled locks from cabinets, store dangerous items out of reach of children, and contact DJG for a free replacement.
