The suspension fittings can break causing a child to fall from the swing, posing a risk of serious injury, said the company and U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission.
There have been four reports including one in Germany, two in Austria, and one in Canada of the suspension fittings breaking in use. In one case, a child fell and fractured a leg. No cases have been reported in the US.
This recall involves the IKEA GUNGGUNG swing. GUNGGUNG is intended for indoor and outdoor use by children ages 3-7.
A permanent label is attached to one of the suspension straps, showing age recommendation (3-7), IKEA logo, Design and Quality IKEA of Sweden, GUNGGUNG article number 302.439.74, supplier number 17915, and Made in Vietnam.
The swings were sold at IKEA stores nationwide and online at www.ikea-usa.com from June 2014 to August 2014 for $20.
Consumers should immediately take down the swing to prevent use by children and return it to any IKEA store for a refund, the company and commission advise. Proof of purchase isn’t required to receive a refund.
