Washington, DC:About 540,000 Little Tikes™ 2-in-1 Snug ‘n Secure Pink toddler swings are being recalled because the plastic seat can crack or break, posing a fall hazard.

Little Tikes has received about 140 reports of the swing breaking, including 39 injuries to children including abrasions, bruises, cuts and bumps to the head. Two of the reported injuries included children with a broken arm. This recall involves Little Tikes 2-in-1 Snug’n Secure pink toddler swings. The swings have a pink T-shaped restraint in front with a Little Tikes logo. 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.

We bought this exact swing from Amazon on November 27 2011 and have proof that we bought it. However, I couldn't submit the claim form because it required a picture of the date stamp. A visiting child was on the swing last fall and the seat broke out while she was in it. We threw the swing away and thus, are unable to take a picture or submit a claim form.
