Swing Sets Recalled

Date:
September 25, 2007
Category:
Playground Equipment
Company/Brand:
BCI Burke Company
The Danger:
The connection on the top beam of the swing set can break, causing the swing beam to collapse, posing a fall hazard. A user or bystander also can be injured by the falling top rail.
Description:
The recall includes about 670 Single Post Swing Sets (model 550-0033) and added bay swings (model 550-0035) with belt or bucket seats. The swings are made with a 2-3/8-inch diameter top beam that is welded to a formed plate on each end to attach to the upright post.
Sold At:
BCI Burke or BCI Burke Company representatives from January 2000 through August 2007 for about $900 to $1,500.
What To Do:
Stop using the product immediately and remove the existing swings from the top beam. Consumers can re-install the swings once the repair kit is received and installed with the current beam. BCI Burke will contact the owners directly by mail and provide a free repair kit. For additional information, please contact Burke customer service at (800) 356-2070 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit their Web site at www.bciburke.com, or e-mail customerservice@bciburke.com
