The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with The Step2 Company, today announced a voluntary recall of about 4,300 Step2 Play Up Gym play sets because the triangular hangers that attach the swing’s ropes to the upper rail of the play set can break, posing a fall hazard to children.
Step2 has received 17 reports of hangers breaking. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves Step2 Play Up Gym play sets. The recalled outdoor play sets include a platform, climber, slide area and two swings and have a model number of 797300. A red “Step2” logo plate is attached to the front of the play set. Play sets that have hangers with white plastic bushings are not subject to this recall.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled play sets and contact Step 2 to receive a set of replacement hangers and instructions.
