About the Flexible Flyer Swing Recall
According to the U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission, the see-saw section can easily fall apart from the bolts that keep it fastened to the set, risking falls and injuries. CPSC urges consumers to immediately stop use and contact Troxel to receive information for a free repair kit.
1,232 reports have been confirmed regarding the breakage of the see saw seats. Of those reports, thirteen injuries including bruises and abrasions have been suffered by small children who used the sets.
Description of the Flexible Flyer Swing Sets
There are 11 different designs, each containing a see saw, swings, bars or a slide. To identify each set, a model number can be found underneath the center top bar. The recalled model numbers can found on the CPSC website.
