The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Adventure Playsets, today announced a voluntary recall of 240,000 Adventure Playsets Wooden Swing Sets because the wood in the posts of the fort sections on the swing sets can weaken due to rotting, posing a fall hazard.
Adventure Playsets has received more than 500 complaints reporting concern over the weakened wood in the 2×4 plastic-coated uprights. One report of a fall was received when the ladder failed resulting in bruises and scratches.
The swing sets come with swings, slides and ladders. Each set has a fort structure that uses green or cranberry colored plastic coated 2”x 4” wood upright posts and a green nylon fabric covered shade. The sets were sold under the following names: Bellevue, Bellevue II, Belmont, Durango, Durango II, Sedona, Tacoma, Tacoma II, Ventura, Venture II and Yukon,. The name is printed on the manufacturer’s instructions that came with the play set.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled swing sets and contact Adventure Playsets toll free at (877) 840-9068 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, visit the firm’s website at www.recall.adventureplaysets.com or email the firm at email@example.com to obtain a free repair kit. Repair kits will include the appropriate angled or vertical upright posts for each model with instructions for dissembling and reassembling each set.
