Adventure Playsets Recalled

Date:
November 5, 2009
Category:
Play Yards, Gyms & Activity Centers
Company/Brand:
Adventure Playsets
The Danger:
The plastic coated lumber on the horizontal ladder (monkey bar/swing beam) can weaken over time due to rotting of the whitewood (spruce, pine, and fir species), resulting in a fall hazard.
Description:
This recall involves about 275,000 wooden play sets with swings, slides, and ladders in the United States and 6,800 in Canada. Each set has an overhead monkey bar ladder that acts as both the monkey bar and swing beam, and an end ladder coated with cranberry- or green-colored plastic. The instruction manual has the name "Adventure Playsets" and one of the following model numbers printed on the cover: Durango 1-AP016 and 1- AP018, Yukon 1-AP052, Tacoma 1- AP017 and 1-AP051, El Dorado 1-AP016, Bellevue 1-AP048 and 1-AP012, Dakota 1- AP046, Sherwood 1-AP049, Sedona 1- AP002, Ventura 1-AP008, Madison 1- AP006 and 1-AP015, and Belmont 1-AP003.
Sold At:
Walmart, Toys R Us, Academy Sports, Menards, and Mill stores nationwide, and online at Walmart.com, ToyRUs.com, Willygoat.com, and through the DMSI catalog from January 2004 through December 2007 for between $300 and $600.
What To Do:
Immediately stop using the swing sets and contact Adventure Playsets to receive a replacement kit.
