The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Anji Jiayi Garden Supplies Company, Xiaofeng Town, China, has announced a voluntary recall of Wilson & Fisher Garden Swings due to a fall hazard. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
This recall involves Wilson & Fisher log-style swing sets in a natural wood finish sold at Big Lots stores. The swing’s two-person bench seat is suspended between two wooden A-frame supports. Assembly instructions sold with the swings have item number JY1107 and SKU number 210020400 printed on the sheet.
The wooden swing’s seat can break while in use, posing a fall hazard to the consumer.
About 6,900 swings were sold at Big Lots stores nationwide from March 2012 through June 2012 for about $130.
Big Lots has received 14 reports of swing seats breaking, resulting in four reports of back pain and five reports of scratches and scrapes.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled swing sets, detach the bench seat and return it to any Big Lots store for a full refund. Consumers should destroy the remaining components.
