Company recalls several swing set models

The Troxel Company is recalling 11 swing set models because of a problem that has injured more than a dozen children.

The recall includes 100,500 swing sets in the U.S.

The see saw seats can break away from the bolt fasteners during use, posing a fall hazard.

The company received 1,232 reports of see saw seats breaking resulting in thirteen injuries to young children that included bumps, bruises and lacerations.

The Flexible Flyer swing sets come in 11 different models each with a see saw attachment along with swings, bars or a slide. The model number can be found on a sticker located underneath the center of the top bar of each swing set unit. Model numbers and names are listed below:

Walmart, Toys R Us, Academy, other specialty stores and online retailers sold the sets from December 2011 through May 2012 for between $130 and $280.

You should stop using the see saws immediately and contact Troxel to receive a free repair kit.
