The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (http://www.cpsc.gov) announced today that Prime-Line Products, an importer located in Redlands, California, had agreed to a voluntary recall of 37,000 child safety latches and outlet covers, based on the discovery that screws on the safety latches can loosen and/or break, allowing young children to gain access to unprotected electrical outlets and small loose parts they could ingest. The products were sold under the name Child Safe. The recall includes child safety drawer and cabinet latches, as well as outlet covers with rotating receptacle covers.
