PhotoBRP U.S. of Sturtevant, Wis., is recalling about 2,500 BRP Sea-Doo marine coolers.

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.

No incidents or injuries are reported.

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.

The coolers, manufactured in the U.S., 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

Consumers should immediately put the coolers out of the reach of children. Contact a BRP Sea-Doo dealer for a free repair.
