The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in co-operation with Little Tikes of Hudson, Ohio, announced a voluntary recall Thursday of Little Tikes Clubhouse Swing Set due to a fall hazard.
The recalled swing sets did not come with assembly directions for the swing seat harness. The swing seat harness assembly needs to be completed by the consumer. The swing seats can detach if the harness is not assembled properly, which could result in fall and injury during use.
The recall affects about 1,950 units. No incidents or injuries have been reported.
The Little Tikes Clubhouse Swing Set is a plastic molded product that features a climbing wall, rope ladder, slide and two swings with blue and yellow seats. Only the blue seat model is being recalled. The model numbers are 400V and 612398.
Various retailers including Toys R Us and Wal-Mart sold the swing sets from October 2008 through March 2009 for about $450 US.
Consumers should stop using recalled swing sets immediately until they have obtained and carefully read the assembly instructions for the swing seat harness. Instructions can be obtained by accessing the Little Tikes Web site or by calling the firm's hotline.
