Locker Brand has recalled 59,600 Rx Lockers due to a design flaw that can allow “unauthorized access” to medicine containers, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced.
Product: Rx Locker medicine bottle storage containers
Made By: Locker Brand Inc. imported the products, which were sold at Bed Bath & Beyond, CVS, Walgreens and the Locker Brand website from June 2010 through October 2011 for about $15.
Why it’s being recalled: The medicine container can open by applying pressure to the latch when it is locked. This could result in unauthorized access to medicine bottles in the container.
Description: The Rx Locker is a medicine bottle storage container made of orange plastic with a white top resembling four pill containers. It has a metal, three-number combination lock on the front. Production batch numbers are printed on the bottom of the container.

Recalled batch numbers end with: 052 010, 062 010, 082 010 and 122 010.
