On May 26th the US Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a news release announcing the recall of pool drain covers from 8 manufacturers.  These types of pool covers were installed to comply with the "Virgina Graeme Baker Pool & Safety Act".  Apparently, these pool covers are inappropriately rated and do not adequately mitigate the entrapment hazard presented by pool drains.  More information and details on how to identify recalled pool drain covers is at CPSC pool drain cover recall.
