Playworld System swing sets recalled

WASHINGTON, May 6 (UPI) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of Playground Swing Sets made by Playworld Systems Inc. of Lewisburg, Pa. No injuries have been reported but the clevis that holds the swing can wear down, causing the swing to detach, creating a falling hazard, a CPSC statement said.

The swing sets were sold through authorized dealers from January 2007 through February 2008 for between $770 and $3,100.

Consumers are advised to immediately remove the swing from the frame until a repair kit is installed.

Consumers can call Playworld Systems at 800-233-8404 for further information.

About 17,300 swing sets were sold, CPSC reported.
