In a press release, Locker Brand Inc, in association with and in compliance with the rules and regulations of the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), announced the voluntary recall of their Rx Locker Medicine Bottle Storage Container after the company learned that the locking mechanism can opened by applying pressure to the latch when it is locked. This defective latch could potentially result in unauthorized access to medicine bottles held within the container. This recall affects just under 60,000 units of the Rx Lockers that were available at retail stores such as Bed, Bath and Beyond, CVS, and Walgreens and through the company’s website from June 2010 through October 2011. No reports of incidents or injuries have been reported so far relating to the recalled Rx Lockers. Consumers are being asked to stop using the Rx Lockers at once and to contact the company for a free return mailer. Once Locker Brand has received the defective product, a full refund will be issued.
