The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled about 700 Arch swing sets because a metal weld at the top may break, causing the top bar to fall.
Manufacturer Playland International, Carrollton, Ga., has received one report of a child who suffered a head injury after the bar fell.
The recalled sets includes swings in red, orange, yellow, blue, tan, white, black, brown, teal, green, fuchsia, burgundy and purple.
They were sold from September 2001 to May 2006 for between $800 US and $2,300 US each.
Playland International is offering a free repair kit.
It can be reached at (800) 356-4727 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
