A line of children’s swing sets has been recalled because of breaking and falling hazards.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Health Canada and the Troxel Company, issued a recall of Troxel’s Flexible Flyer Swing Sets Wednesday, July 11, 2012. The recall was issued after Troxel and the CPSC received reports of the set’s seesaw seats breaking off, creating a falling hazard.
The recalled swing sets were sold at Walmart, Toys R Us, Academy, and other specialty stores and online retailers. They were sold between December 2011 and May 2012. The swing sets came in 11 different models, all included swings and a seesaw with an attachment for bars or a slide.

- Big Adventure (#41575);
