Redlands, CA — About 37,000 safety latches and outlet covers are involved in a voluntary product recall, because of the latches and covers ability to allow unintended access. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Prime-Line announced the product recall on July 27, 2011.

The nationwide product recall was issued after discovering that the screws on the safety latches and outlet covers can loosen and/or break, which can allow young children to access electrical outlets and other potentially hazardous items.

“This recall involves Prime-Line child safety drawer and cabinet latches and outlet covers with rotating receptacle covers. These products were sold under the brand name Child Safe. The model number and SKU are printed on the back of the package,” reported the CPSC.

• The drawer and cabinet latches were sold three per package, in model number S 4439 with SKU 049793044396, and model number S 4444 with SKU 049793044440.

• The outlet covers were sold one per package, in ivory, model number S 4447 with SKU 049793044471, and white, model number S 4461 with SKU 049793044617.

Consumers have been advised to contact Prime-Line to receive a free replacement kit. The recalled latches were sold at Ace Hardware, Bostwic-Braun, Cal-Do-It Centers, Do-It-Best, Friedman Brothers, Menards, Orgill, The Andersons Inc. and True Value stores for between $2.50 and $2.70. The outlet covers were sold at Ace Hardware, Cimarron Lumber & Supply, Do-It-Best, Friedman Brothers, Handy Hardware, Menards and W.E. Aubuchon stores for about $3.50.
