Consumer Recalls: Swing Sets

Pacific Cycle Inc., of Madison, Wis. announced a voluntary recall of Playsafe Dartmouth Swing Sets because the sling-style swing seats can crack or split prematurely, posing a fall hazard to consumers. The recall involves Playsafe's Dartmouth Swing Set, model number 22-PS340, with date codes FSD0115AA and FSD0315AA. The model number and date code can be found in the owner's manual. The swing set has six metal legs and includes two swings with yellow plastic sling-style seats, a yellow plastic sliding board, a two-person glider with yellow plastic seats, yellow plastic trapeze hanging rings and a four-person lawn swing with yellow plastic seats and footboard. The affected swing sets were sold at Toys R Us stores nationwide from January 2011 through May 2011 for about $270.

Consumers should immediately stop using the sling-style swing seats, remove the seats from the swing set and contact Pacific Cycle to obtain free replacement seats. For additional information, contact Pacific Cycle toll-free at (877) 564-2261 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT, Monday through Friday, email the firm or visit the firm's website.

Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

They were also sold at KMart. It isn't just the swings that are doing this, so are the teeter totters. Once it comes apart, it keeps coming apart. We have fixed our daughters to many times to count. Very dangerous for children to play on, just went on and took it off completely.
