Consumers should immediately stop using the locks and contact Dorel for a free replacement of a different model. In the meantime, consumers should store dangerous items out of reach of children and supervise them on visits to the bathroom.
Julie Vallese, VP of Public Affairs for Dorel, said that the timing of the three recalls is more dependent on the Consumer Product Safety Commission and when they finish investigating the products.
“These locks are older models, they haven’t been sold at the major retailers since 2008, and since that time in terms of quality assurance, quite a lot has been done in terms of advancement,” said Vallese.
Dorel Juvenile Group recalled 900,000 Safety 1st cabinet locks back in March. See that recall here. The company also recalled two models of car seats earlier this month that were sold without the base piece, making it difficult to properly secure it.
Vallese said Safety 1st products should be a deterrent to risks around a home, and should not replace adult supervision.
“We are always evaluating our designs in our quality assurance processes to ensure that what we provide to our consumers are quality and useful products in the home,” she said.
