BCI Burke recently announced a recall of 2 2/8 Arch Swing Sets. The firm has received seven reports of incidents involving the recalled swing sets, including two minor injuries.
The welded connection of the sleeve joint to the arch support can crack or break. When this happens, the top swing beam can collapse causing children on the swings to fall and be injured.
The swings sets were sold from January 2004 through December 2011. This recall involves the end and middle arch supports on Arch Swing Sets and added bays with belt or bucket seats built with 2 3/8 inch steel tubing. The swings have a 2 7/8 inch diameter sleeve that is welded to the middle or end support. “Burke” is printed on identification labels that were provided to installers who may or may not have put them on the swings.
Approximately 250 swing sets were sold at BCI Burke Co. and its distributors from January 2004 through December 2011 for between $700 and $1,000.
