Little Tikes Toddler Swing Recall Issued Over Fall Hazards

Nearly 550,000 baby swings have been recalled after dozens of reports involving problems where the plastic swing seats cracked and broke, resulting in nearly two dozen infant injuries, including at least two broken arms. 

The Little Tikes Toddler Swing recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on February 23, following 140 consumer complaints indicating the seat bucket separated from the four suspended yellow ropes while an infant was in the swing.

To date, the CPSC is aware of at least 39 injury reports which have included abrasions, bruises, cuts, and bumps to the head with two of the incidents resulting in broken arms to toddlers.

The recall involves Little Tikes 2-in-1 Snug’n Secure toddler swings with model number 615573 molded on the back of the swing seat. The swings are pink in color and sold with four yellow ropes to suspend the seat. Swings that have date code stamps with an arrow pointing to “10”, “11”, “12”, and “13” are included in the recall, as well as swings with date code stamp “9” on the inner arrow combined with “43” or higher numbers.

The recalled children’s swings were manufactured in the U.S. by Little Tikes of Hudson, Ohio. They were then sold at Walmart, Toys “r” Us and various other in-store retailers as well as online at www.littletikes.com and other online retailers from November 2009 through May 2014 for about $25.

The CPSC is asking customers to stop using the recalled 2-in-1 Snug’n Secure toddler swings immediately and to contact Little Tikes at 855-284-1903 or visit them online at www.littletikes.com and navigate to the “Product Recalls” tab for information on how to receive a refund in the form of a credit towards the purchase of another Little Tikes product.
