TAMPA, Fla — BRP is recalling a Sea-Doo cooler because it poses a potential entrapment and suffocation hazard.

The LinQ Cooler is sold with the 2019 Sea-Doo Fish Pro personal watercraft and separately as an accessory.

BRP warns the cooler's latch can automatically lock when the lid closes, allowing a person to become locked inside.
