Swing Set Recall

Escalade Sports announced a recall of 4,600 swing sets today after concern was raised that the swing seat might break during use. The company has received 24 reports of seats breaking, but no injuries. The swing sets subject to the recall were made in China. I don’t know if it is a design or manufacturing problem.

This is a really nice looking swing set. (It should, it costs between $1,500 and $2,200.) Take http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml11/11120.htmla look. It is scary how many different people have a hand in the safety and welfare of our children. It is absolutely mind numbing when you think about it.
