After 140 reports of the swing’s seat breaking, Little Tikes is recalling 540,000 Snug ‘n Secure pink toddler swings.
Little Tikes pink 2-in-1 Snug’n Secure toddler swings are not so secure.
The toy company is voluntarily recalling 540,000 of the swings due to a fall hazard. The company announced the recall of the pink toddler swings after 140 reports of the swing breaking, according to the U.S. Product Safety Commission.
The name “Snug’n Secure” may sound safe, but reports describe the toy’s plastic seat cracking, putting kids in danger of falling while swinging. There have been 39 reports of kids injured by the swings, with bruises, cuts, bumped heads, and even two broken arms.
Parents may have bought these swings at Walmart, Toys “R” Us, or online between November 2009 and May 2014. To determine whether your swing is safe, check the model number stamped on the back of the seat. The recall only affects pink 2-in-1 Snug’n Secure swings with the model number 615573.
If you have one of these swings at home, stop using it right away. A full refund is not being offered, but you can contact the company for credit towards another Little Tikes brand product.
