Safety Recall



Dear Valued West Marine Customer,

Because our top priority is customer satisfaction and safety, we are notifying you of a voluntary product recall for the Igloo® Marine Elite coolers purchased through West Marine stores. This advisory concerns only those Igloo® Marine Elite coolers with stainless steel latches sold under the item numbers listed below:

Igloo® Marine Elite 72 quart; Item #00044476  

Igloo® Marine Elite 128 quart; Item #00044479

Igloo® Marine Elite 94 quart; Item #00044478

Igloo® Marine Elite 162 quart; Item #00044480

A sharp edge on the stainless steel latch may cause lacerations to arms, legs or other areas of the body. This voluntary action is to eliminate any injury risk that the stainless steel latch may pose to people when the latch is not fully secured. Igloo Products Corp. is working with West Marine to send customers a free replacement kit latch with instructions that can easily and safely be used to replace the latches currently on the product. If you have not received a kit, you may contact Igloo Products Corp. toll free at 1-(888)-257-0934 to confirm that a free latch replacement kit has been mailed to you. Please discard the stainless steel latches after removal from the cooler.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience of this recall and want to assure you that the safety of our coolers is our highest priority.



Thank you,
Igloo Products Corp.
