This report is in regards to Safety First's Press n' Pull Plug Protectors. These plug protectors are too easy to remove and therefore create a false sense of security among parents and caregivers. I owned these covers and my 22 month old started removing them like it was a game. It was scary, a product that I thought was supposed to protect my child was actually attracting my child! When I went to Amazon.com to write a negative review about the plug protectors I found other parents that had the same experience! One parent even posted a video of her child removing the covers!

I am actually surprised that this product has not been recalled yet. I see them being sold in stores and know that new parents (like I once was) will be attracted to these covers don't understand how dangerous they can be. Please please recall this item!!!
I am confident that you will take this recommendation seriously.
