It only takes a moment for tragedy to happen. Luckily for a 5 year old boy in Florida tragedy was averted due to his parents being close by to hear his calls for help. Although safe, the boys family contacted Igloo Coolers regarding the potential hazard of the lock latches, and the company agreed. So they have issued a voluntary recall on the following coolers:

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

According to their safety alert posted on their website they will send customers a free latch-replacement kit that they can use to easily and safely switch out the current latch.

Igloo urges anyone with the coolers listed to contact them toll free at 1(888)-257-0934 for further information.
