Rockford Parents, If You Have This Swing Get Rid Of It Now
Little Tikes has announced a recall on one of their more popular items, the 2-in-1 Snug 'n Secure Pink Swing, due to the risk of it breaking and becoming a fall hazard.
Mother Nature's touch of Spring last week has us dusting off the old Little Tikes swing for my littles, and when I saw this recall announcement, I panicked a little bit. I did breathe a sigh of relief though when I realized the recall is for the pink model only, and our swing is about the only non-pink toy we have in our home.
According to the product recall page on LittleTikes.com;
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Little Tikes Company, of Hudson, Ohio, is implementing a correction action plan involving approximately 540,000 units of the “2-in-1 Snug ‘n Secure” pink swings manufactured during the time period of November 2009 and December 2013.
According to about 140 reports received by Little Tikes, the swing is a fall hazard with the potential for the plastic seat to break or crack causing bruises, scrapes, and in some cases, broken arms in children.
To determine whether your swing is part of this recall, look for this model number on the back your seat:
Also check to see if the molded INNER arrow of the date code stamp on the back points to “10”, “11”, “12” or “13”. If there is also a date code stamp of “9” on the INNER arrow combined with “43” or higher number stamped on the OUTER edges, your swing is included in this recall:
If you determine you have a recalled swing, stop using it immediately and contact Little Tikes here for a credit towards the purchase of another Little Tikes product.
