Pacific Cycle, Inc., and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a voluntary recall of Playsafe Dartmouth Swing Sets due to a fall hazard. People should immediately stop using the swing sets.
The sling-style swing seats can crack or split prematurely, posing a fall hazard to children. Pacific Cycle has received five reports of this happening, including reports of minor injuries involving bruises and scrapes.
This 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 recalled swing sets were sold exclusively at Toys R Us stores nationwide from January 2011 through May 2011 for about $270.
People 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.
