Igloo recalls coolers after child is locked in

Igloo is recalling eight of its cooler models after an incident in South Florida.

A family said their child decided it would be fun to hide in a cooler outside. Caught on surveillance, the child is in the cooler, and the top drops and locks.

The family reached out to Igloo to report the incident.

The company issued a voluntary recall of several models due to a stainless-steel latch that could “inadvertently close where a person could potentially become locked inside.”

Igloo said it’s sending consumers a latch replacement kit for the recalled products.

Products being recalled:

    • Igloo® Marine Elite 72 quart; Item #00049375
    • Igloo® Marine Elite 54 quart; Item #00049374
    • Igloo® Marine Elite 94 quart; Item #00049574
    • Igloo® Marine Elite 110 quart; Item #00034108
