FlyBar has recalled several thousand baby and toddler swings due to a potential fall hazard.
About the Flybar Baby and Toddler Swings Recall
On May 14, 2020, Swurfer Kiwi Baby and Toddler Swings products by FlyBar were recalled fore defects in the seats that can potentially lead to fall injuries for small children. The recall affects about 3,000 swings.
The swings were originally manufactured in August of 2019 and are meant to hang from tree branches or stable outdoor posts for kids. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), weak plastic stoppers used in the products can easily break apart, allowing the swings to detach and fall.
As of now, there have been a total of 6 reported swing detachments from these defective products.
Consumers are heavily advised to stop using the swings and contact the manufacturers for repair instructions.
