Five-year-old Nicholas Wanes was playing at his Pompano Beach, Fl., home on March 2 when he vanished from sight. After screaming for help, the boy’s family rushed over and discovered Nicholas inside of a white Igloo cooler.
For the most part…a lot of coolers today have done away with the closing latch.
This particular Igloo cooler had a metal clasp that closed when the boy shut the lid.
Igloo has issued voluntary recall six items with stainless-steel lock latches:
- Igloo® Lockable Latch; Item #00020087
- Igloo® Marine Elite 54 quart; Item #00049374
- Igloo® Marine Elite 72 quart; Item #00049375
- Igloo® Marine Elite 94 quart; Item #00049574
- Igloo® Marine Elite 110 quart; Item #00034108
- Igloo® Marine Elite 150 quart; Item #00049573
