==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to the CPSC, the recalled Cooler’s stainless-steel latch can automatically lock when the lid is closed, allowing a child to become locked inside the air tight container, posing entrapment and suffocation hazards. Igloo has received one (1) report of a child who became entrapped in the cooler before being freed by an adult.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Coolers, please do not use them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
