Little Tikes swing sets recalled

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of Little Tikes Clubhouse Swing Sets because of a fall hazard.

About 1,950 swing sets were produced by Little Tikes of Hudson, Ohio, and sold nationwide between October 2008 and March 2009 for about $450.

The swings were sold without instructions for assembling the swing seat harness, possibly resulting in incorrect assembly, the Commission said.

Consumers were advised to stop children from using the recalled swing sets until proper assembly instructions can be obtained.

The instructions were available on the Little Tikes Web site or can be obtained by calling the company.

Consumers can call 800-321-0183 for information.
