A series of recalls have occurred this week, and the majority of them involved toys. The recalled products are a swing and a toy frog. Pay attention to the toys that your child is playing with.
The recalled swing is produced by Little Tikes. The Consumer Product Safety Commission declared that the seat of 2-in-1 Snug ‘n Secure Pink toddler swing could break or crack. They issued this statement after receiving numerous complaints that the swing broke.
In many of the cases, the children involved in the accidents experienced bruises, cuts, or bumps to the head. Two children even ended up with a broken arm after the incident.
The recall includes 540,000 swings. You can recognize them from the pink restraint from the front shaped like a T with a Little Tikes logo on it. Search for the model number 615573 which should be molded on the back. Also, look on the back of the seat for the manufacturing code stamps where the arrow points to 10, 11, 12, or 13.
Also, if the stamp code of your swing reads 9 on the inner arrow and 43 or a bigger number on the outer arrow, then your swing is also included in the recall.
The swings were available for $25 at Walmart, Toys “R” Us, or other online or physical stores all over the United States between November 2009 and May 2014.
If you own one of the products that are part of the recall, contact Little Tikes immediately and stop using the swing. They will offer you a refund in the form of a credit that allows you to purchase different Little Tikes products.
The other toys recalled this week are 427,000 Little Live Pets Lil Frog and Lil Frog Lily Pad produced by Moose Toys. The battery cap can turn into a projectile when the batteries are removed, and their chemicals can also leak.
There were 17 reported cases of issues, and some of them caused eye irritation from the battery chemicals. Look on the lower bellies of the toy frogs for the following codes: SKU 28217 and SKU 28218. Also, the date code ranges from WS112016 to WS123216.
The recalled toys are green, pink, or blue, and have been sold in Walmart, Target, or Toys “R” Us stores between August 2016 and February 2017. If you have one of the recalled toys, contact Moose Toys and they will replace the frog for free.
