Consumer Alerts

BETHESDA, MD. (KTAL/KMSS) — A company is recalling nearly 3,000 baby and toddler swings due to a fall hazard.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Swurfer Kiwi Baby and Toddler Swings were recently recalled because the plastic stopper on the bottom of the swing rope that holds the swing seat in place can detach, posing a fall hazard to the child.

This recall involves:

  • Plastic swings sold in green, blue and pink
  • Swings attach to a swing set or a tree branch
  • The swing measures about 15 inches wide, by 10 inches deep and 20 inches high
  • FlyBar, Inc. and Kiwi Swing SSW-0005 are printed on the underside of the swing
  • The manufacture date code of Aug. 2019 is embossed on the back of the swing

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled swings and contact the firm to receive instructions to repair the swings.

The company has received six reports of the rope end detaching. No injuries have been reported.

CPSC officials said the swings were sold online at Swurfer.com, FlyBar.com, Amazon.com, Walmart.com and at independent stores nationwide from Oct. 2019 through March 2020 for about $80.
