The AP (9/27) reports, "About 6,900 garden swings imported from China and sold at Big Lots stores nationwide have been recalled because the seat can break." According to the report, "the Wilson & Fisher Garden Swings, made by Anji Jiayi Garden Supplies Co. of Xiaofeng Town, China, were sold at Big Lots stores between March and June." The story notes that Big Lots "has received 14 reports of swing seats breaking, resulting in four reports of back pain and five reports of scratches and scrapes."
A press release carried by PRNewswire (9/27) notes that the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has advised that "Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled swing sets, detach the bench seat and return it to any Big Lots store for a full refund," and that they should destroy the remaining components.
