Consumer Reports News: July 11, 2012 03:38 PM

The Troxel Company, of Moscow, Tenn., has recalled 100,500 Flexible Flyer swing sets in the U.S. and 4,900 in Canada because the see saw seat can break away from the bolt fasteners during use, posing a fall hazard. Troxel has received 1,232 reports of breaking see saws, resulting in thirteen injuries to young children that included bumps, bruises and lacerations.

The recalled swing sets were sold for $130 to $280 at Walmart, Toys R Us, Academy, and other specialty stores and online from December 2011 through May 2012.

The Flexible Flyer swing set comes in 11 models, each with a see saw attachment along with swings, bars or a slide. The model number is on a sticker underneath the center of the top bar of each swing set unit.

Model names and model numbers of recalled swing sets:

  • Backyard Flyer, 42003
