WASHINGTON (WTOC) -

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said it has received 200 reports about Push 'N' Snap Cabinet locks, produced by Dorel Juvenile Group (DJG) Inc., of Columbus, Ind.

The commission said 900,000 locks are being recalled because of reports the locks don't adequately secure cabinets.

Young children can get through the locks, possibly leading to exposure of unsafe or hazardous items, according to the CPSC.

Of the 140 incidents in which children were able to get into cabinets, the commission said three involved children swallowing or handling hazardous cleaners or detergents.
