Child Outdoor Play Sets Recalled Due to Fall Hazard

Nearly 4,300 out door child gym sets, sold exclusively at Toys”R”Us, have been recalled due to a fall hazard. The May 28, 2009 recall, announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CSPS), warns consumers to discontinue use of the defective swing sets immediately.

What Out Door Play Sets Were Recalled?

The product name is Step2 Play Up Gym play sets, sold exclusively at Toys”R”Us. The voluntary recall involves nearly 4,300 items. The play sets, manufactured by The Step2 Company, LLC of Streetsboro, Ohio, were sold in Toys”R”Us stores, nationwide from January 2009 to April 2009 for approximately $400.

What is the Basis of the Recall?

The child play set recall is based on the fact that the triangular hangers that attach the swing’s ropes to the upper rail of the play set are faulty and can break easily. If this happens, children can fall and injure themselves.
