Norcross, GA — Fall hazards have prompted the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Sportime LLC, a subsidiary of School Specialty Inc., to voluntarily recall Abilitations aDOORable swing bars. The CPSC announced the product recall on June 15, 2011.

The product recall was issued after discovering that the swing bar can break, which poses a fall hazard to consumers.

Two minor injuries, including one report of rug burn after falling from a swing attached in the bar, were received by Sportime.

“The Abilitations brand aDOORable swing bar is designed to be suspended in a doorway so that a swing attachment can be connected. The swing bar is a white metal pole between two brackets that attach to a standard size doorway with metal screws. Two metal ‘S’ hooks are welded to the metal pole for a swing attachment. ‘Abilitations aDOORable Swing Bar’ and product number ‘1302341’ are printed on the metal pole,” reported the CPSC.

Consumers are advised to contact Sportime to receive a full refund for the swing bar and additional attachments sold with the swing bar.

For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact Sportime toll-free at (888) 388-3224 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit their website at www.sportime.com.
