Madison, WI — Pacific Cycle Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have recalled about 5,500 Playsafe Dartmouth Swing Sets, sold exclusively at Toys R US, for fall hazards the product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on August 30, 2011.
The product recall was issued after discovering that the sling-style swing seats can crack or split prematurely, which poses a fall hazard to consumers.
