Adventure Playsets recalls Wooden Fort-Swing Sets
If you have an Adventure Playset wood fort and swing set, you may want to check with the manufacturer to see if it’s part of a recall. Nearly a quarter million units, from 11 different models, have been recalled due to rot of wooden planks which could lead to a falling hazard.
Models affected include: Bellevue, Bellevue II, Belmont, Durango, Durango II, Sedona, Tacoma, Tacoma II, Ventura, Venture II and Yukon. Each unit comes with a swing, fort structure, slides and a ladder. Like most fort style playsets, it comes with a green nylon fabric roof covering that’s been plastic coated. The unit’s wooden parts can rot and collapse which could cause major injury if a child is playing in it at the wrong moment. The set was sold between 2005-2007 for between $300-600.
Users should stop using the swing immediately and contact Adventure Playsets for a free repair kit. The kit includes properly treated replacement posts and directions on how to dissamble, replace and reassemble the swing set. Adventure Playsets can be reached toll free at (877) 840-9068 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, visiting the firm’s website at www.recall.adventureplaysets.com or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
