Feb. 24, 2017 -- Injuries to children are prompting the recall of 540,000 Little Tikes 2-in-1 Snug'n Secure pink toddler swings.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product safety Commission, "the swings have a pink T-shaped restraint in front with a Little Tikes logo," and the swing "is suspended by four yellow ropes."
The plastic seat of the swing can crack or break, causing children to fall. According to the CPSC, "The firm has received about 140 reports of the swing breaking, including 39 injuries to children including abrasions, bruises, cuts and bumps to the head. Two of the reported injuries included children with a broken arm."
To identify if your swing is under recall, look for model number 615573 molded in the back of the swing seat, and the molded inner arrow of the date code stamp should point to "10," "11", "12" or "13".
Also swings with a date code stamp of "9" on the inner arrow combined with the number "43" or higher stamped on the outer are included in the recall. Only these date codes are affected.
The swings were sold for about $25 nationwide at Walmart, Toys "R" Us and other stores, and online at www.littletikes.com and other websites between November of 2009 and May 2014.
Consumers are urged to stop using the recalled swings immediately and contact Little Tikes toll-free at 855-284-1903 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET Monday through Friday for a full refund of credit.
