The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Adventure Playsets announced a voluntary recall of approximately 240,000 swing sets. The recall affects seven models that were sold at Academy Sports, Mills and Menards, Mills, Toys-R-Us, and Wal-Mart between 2004 and 2007. All seven models are affected by the same defect; wood in the posts can weaken due to rotting, posing a falling hazard. If you own a recalled swing set, the CPSC recommends that you stop using it immediately and contact Adventure Playsets for a free repair kit. If your child has been injured by an Adventure Playsets swingset, contact our experienced Oklahoma defective product attorneys to discuss your compensation options.
SWING SET DEFECTIVE PRODUCT LIABILITY
This recall is an example of how an item that has been in use for years may have a latent defect. Unfortunately, these defects often do not reveal themselves until someone is injured. Receiving compensation for injuries from a defective product may seem like a daunting task. Contacting the manufacturer yourself will often be a frustrating, fruitless task. An assertion that a product is responsible for an injury will be routed to the company’s legal department.
