Toddler Tree Swing Recall

Posted on June 8, 2020

A New Jersey company has recalled a model of a baby and toddler swing due to the potential for injury. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the Swurfer brand Kiwi Baby and Toddler Swing poses a fall risk if one of its supporting ropes detaches. About 3,000 units out on the market were recalled three weeks ago by Flybar, Inc. of Freehold, NJ, which imports the swings from China.

At issue is the plastic molded shrink-wrap stopper at the bottom of the swing rope, which attaches the swing to a swingset or tree branch. According to the company website, “A few customers have complained that the shrink wrap loosened up or even fell off completely, allowing the rope to detach from the Kiwi.” The swing was previously available at Swurfer.com, FlyBar.com, Amazon.com, Walmart.com and other independent retailers. It was distributed nationwide from October 2019 through March 2020.

The CPSC reports that consumers should immediately stop using the recalled swings and contact Swurfer for further information. While this recall was not prompted by reported injuries, there are many times when an injury happens and you need to speak with an experienced product liability attorney in Philadelphia.
