On February 8th, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Escalade Sports, announced a voluntary recall of four different models of their Oasis outdoor playsets.
What does this mean for you?
Consumers should immediately stop using these swing seats as the seats on the playsets can crack and break in half, causing the user to fall to the ground. This recall involves belt-style swing seats on four models of Oasis Playsets: PG01W, PG02W, PG03W and PG04W. Model numbers are located on a plate on the swing's horizontal beam. The green plastic seats are about 26 inches long and are hung from green, plastic-coated chains. The swing seats have rounded ends with black grommets on each end. Printed on one side of the seat is:
MADE IN CHINA
GUARANTEED FOR ONE YEAR
ADULT SUPERVISION REQUIRED
DO NOT INSTALL IN AREAS WHERE
TEMPERATURES EXCEED 120DEG F
