Little Tikes just announced that it is recalling approximately 540,000 units of the Little Tikes 2-in-1 Snug’n Secure pink toddler swings manufactured between November 2009 and December 2013. These seats were sold by Walmart, ToysRUs and other stores nationwide and online from November 2009 through May 2014 for about $25.
Why the recall?
These swings are being recalled as the plastic seat can crack or break, posing a fall hazard – there have been about 140 reports of the swing breaking including 39 injuries to children.
Which seat is being recalled?
The swings being recalled have a pink T-shaped restraint in front with a Little Tikes logo and the swing is suspended by four yellow ropes. The model number 615573 is molded on the back of the swing seat and there is a manufacturing date code stamp on the back of the seat.
The molded INNER arrow of the date code stamp points to “10”, “11”, “12” or “13”, it is included in the recall. In addition, swings with a date code stamp of “9” on the INNER arrow combined with “43” or higher number stamped on the OUTER are included in this recall. No other date codes or other colored swings are affected.
What do I do if I own this swing?
You should immediately stop using the recalled swings and contact Little Tikes for a refund in the form of a credit towards the purchase of another Little Tikes product. For more information, contact Little Tikes here or by phone at 1–855-284-1903 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
