September 27, 2012 — Big Lots Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) are announcing a voluntary recall of the Wilson & Fisher Garden Swings. Big Lots has received at least 14 reports of injuries that occurred when the bench seat on the swing set broke, causing serious fall injuries. Four reports involve back pain and five reports involve scrapes and scratches.
The log-style wooden swing sets consist of a two-person bench seat that is suspended between two A-frame wooden supports. The wooden beams have a natural wood finish.
The Big Lots swing sets are manufactured in China by Anji Jiayi Garden Supplies Company. In America, they are sold under the Wilson & Fisher brand at Big Lots. The products require assembly by the customer after they are purchased. The instruction booklet is marked with SKU number 210020400 and item number JY1107. The swing sets were sold at Big Lots throughout the United States between March 2012 and June 2012 for about $130.
Big Lots and Wilson & Fisher are not offering any type of repair kit to customers. Instead of attempting to repair the defective seat of the swing set, customers are advised to stop the product, remove the bench seat, and return the swing set to Big Lots for a refund. Customers should also destroy any extra pieces of the swing set.
The CPSC is also warning that it is illegal for customers to attempt to resell products that are recalled. However, they still encourage customers to report injuries to the agency at http://www.SaferProducts.gov .
