Gov't recalls safety latches and outlet covers for potential hazards

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KAIT) - The U.S. Product Safety Commission in cooperation with Prime-Line, of Redlands, California has recalled thousands of child safety latches and outlet covers.

Outlet covers were sold at Ace Hardware, Cimarron Lumber & Supply, Do-It-Best, Friedman Brothers, Handy Hardware, Menards and W.E. Aubuchon stores nationwide between October 2009 and June 2011 for about $3.50.
