The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports of a recall involving Adventure Playsets Wooden Swing Sets. The wood in the posts of the fort sections on the swing sets can weaken due to rotting, posing a fall hazard. A number of the products were recalled in November 2009 for a similar hazard in the U.S. and Canada.
See HSW Product Details tab for specifics on the affected items.
Adventure Playsets has received more than 500 complaints reporting concern over the weakened wood in the 2x4 plastic-coated uprights. ▲One report of a fall was received when the ladder failed resulting in bruises and scratches.
In the U.S., recalled sets were sold at Academy Sports; Mills and Menards; Mills; Toys-R-Us; and Walmart from 2004 to 2007. The 2009 Health Canada recall listed Walmart as one of the Canadian retailers involved.
Corrective Action:Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled swing sets and contact Adventure Playsets to obtain a free repair kit. Repair kits will include the appropriate angled or vertical upright posts for each model with instructions for dissembling and reassembling each set.
