The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced that BRP is recalling Sea-Doo LingQ 13.5 gallon marine coolers due to entrapment and suffocation hazards.
The cooler latch can automatically lock when the lid is closed, allowing a person to become locked inside the air-tight container posing entrapment and suffocation hazards, the CPSC reports.
The recall affects about 2,500 units.
This recall involves Sea-Doo LinQ™ 13.5 gallon or 51 liter marine coolers sold separately or with model year 2019 Sea-Doo Fish Pro personal watercraft. The coolers are made for use on boats and marine environments. Part number 269800817 is engraved under the cooler and can also be found on a sticker under the cooler. The coolers are white with black storage pocket, rod holder system and trolling slots.
Consumers should immediately put the coolers out of the reach of children. Contact a BRP Sea-Doo dealer for a free repair.
No incidents or injuries have been reported.
The coolers were sold at Sea-Doo dealers nationwide and online on sea-doo.com, Amazon.com, and other websites from September 2018 through June 2019 for about $650 when sold separately.
