The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced that more than 100,000 Flexible Flyer Swing Sets are being recalled by the Troxel Company.
Eleven different models are being recalled, including The Big Adventure, Fantastic Playground and Triple Fun II. They were sold between December 2011 and May 2012 at Wal-mart, Toys 'R' Us and other stores nationwide.
The manufacturer has received more than 1,200 reports of the see-saw-seats breaking, resulting in 13 reported injuries to young children.
If you think you might have one of these swing sets, the model number can be found on a sticker located underneath the center of the top bar of each swing set unit. Users should stop using the see-saws immediately and call Troxel for a free repair kit.
